At least I made one card for Christmas!

Can you believe it's only 10 days until Christmas! I hope everyone's preparations are going to plan, I've got a handful of presents left to wrap and then I'm ready! As I think I've said in a previous post I had intended to make my Christmas cards but the idea I had in mind did not go to plan. But all was not lost as I did manage to make at least one card, a birthday card for my sister inlaw Jojo. 
Lately I've been buying 6x6 paper pads with the intention of using them to make cards as the patterns are smaller and wouldn't over power a card too much. The spotty paper is from the Mayberry collection from American Crafts, not a collection I would have used for scrapping but when I saw the paper pad on sale I thought it great for cards. The Polaroid frame is also cut with some Mayberry paper using my MFT frame die. The cupcake and ribbon flower were readymade embellishments I'd had in my stash for ages so I was pleased to finally use them. I stamped a Stampin Up greeting to an Elle's Studio banner and that's the card! Not a Christmas card but a Christmas birthday card! 


  1. Love it Jess. That polaroid frame is so versatile.

  2. A very pretty card it is too! Love using old stash - so satisfying! x

  3. Beautiful card :) I have that cupcake and flower somewhere too :)
