Using Leftovers

Well the Mod Squad Blog Challenge called for using at least three different pattern papers on a card or entry. And, since I had some leftovers I once again am making a Christmas card using some I had die cut previously using the Gina K. Designs large stitched square dies. All the pattern papers and card stock are from Gina K. Designs as is the sentiment which is from the recently released Deck the Halls stamp set.


I layered each of the squares of pattern paper onto white card stock and then added it to a red card stock panel which in turn was placed on a white card base. I placed the sentiment panel over the top and then added some little sequin snowflakes. They were originally pink but I added some red Copic to them to color them up a bit more. I also added white sequin snowflakes in each corner. Again another easy to do card and that makes two for my 2019 Christmas supply now.

Well, I am so glad my new year is off to a good start in the Christmas cards. Hopefully, I can keep up that trend throughout the year. And, thanks so much for your visits. I love to hear from you.

God bless,
Verna
