How has your week started? Yesterday I walked to our local Next it took me an hour there and back with some shopping time included. It is quite a nice walk I think I will be doing it again. Today I have a crafty day planned. My husband will be home early he has a dentist appointment. We are hoping to be able to go back to the shop where we ordered our new oven as we haven't heard anything since last week - watch this space.
My husband commented the other day that I know you like making my large cards but they aren't so practical for posting. So I decided to make a few more smaller ones.
I found a pack of smaller card blanks with matching envelopes in my stash. I cut all the mats and layers with my guillotine. I have stopped using my rotary trimmer in favour of the guillotine as I think the cut is better. I am quite surprised.
I stamped eight of these cute Santas with the Cookie- Cutter Christmas stamp set from Stampin Up. Four of them were used for these cards. They were cut out with the matching punch. I used some scalloped circle dies to cut the circles behind the Rustic Twig Wreath from Creative Expressions.
The sentiment was cut with a Signature die.
I had cut all of the bits for the cards. When I came to make them I decided to swap the elements around. They should be okay for posting.
You will see what happened to the other four Santas sometime soon.
I would like to enter the November Christmas Challenge at Beccy's Place Challenge blog.
