Christmas Cards IV - More Recycling!

Hello There

Here we are again, Sunday night and having to pack away the weekend ready to go to work tomorrow!  This weekend has gone whoosh as it flew past me!!

Anyhoo!  Before I exchange my comfie clothes for my office suit I thought I would share some more Snippets Christmas cards with you.....



Love this carrollers die from Mr Holtz.  I managed to borrow this from Lesley when she came up recently.  Not a very good short unfortunately? But you get the drift!  The holly was cut with an old XCut punch.  Perfect size don't you think?

Another Snippet card using the pieces from the album which I made a few years ago, with some red card out of the Snippets box.  Punched on the corners, some doodling, ribbon and pearls.  The Sentiment is a stamp which has been embossed with red embossing powder.  The reindeer was made from recycled chipboard, inked and them embossed with embossing powder several times before stamping in to get he snowflake effect.

And yet another recycled envelope with a new sentiment placed and one of my die of the year cuts!
That is it from me today.  Off to bed now but before I go I shall pop over to the Snippets Playground for my horlicks (other night time drinks are available) and hopefully a bedtime story!

Oh my, some lovelies to enjoy this afternoon. I have seen the TH carolers die, but not seen it on a card until now. Really pretty silhouettes against that lovely background paper. Nice holly trim on the hat too. Loving the Reindeer card, but I was blown away by that gorgeous envelope. And you were able to recycle so many objects to make more wonderful & beautiful creations. All of a weekend. Wow! TFS & Hugs

Fantastic Sam - I can see why you love the carollers die! You'd laugh, I searched all over the first card for the punched holly - there it was on 'is 'at the whole time.

Hugs, sorry I'm a bit late visiting!

You're a snippet-demon - amazing creations again, using all those wonderful patterns and pieces. Love the carollers against the holly, and that fabulous textured deer - they're all great!
