Rudolph time again and once more
I have endeavoured to make six of the same.
Looking at my pile of Christmas scraps
I thought it was high time instead of just adding to them
that I actually started to use some of them up.
So an idea of using up the scraps randomly across the page
The first card (purple ) took me ages as I was sticking
the strips on individually to the card.
At this rate I thought it would be Christmas Day
come and gone before I had them all done!
I then hit on the idea (rather belatedly) to attach
double sided tape all over the card front, peel off
and then just wiz across with the stripes of paper
leaving the edges overhanging.
It was an easy task to use the trimmer to cut them off afterwards.
It helped to have the pile of strips ready to hand
and sort of plan out the colour ways. (That's my story).
Here are the finished cards.
I used odds and ends of embellishments from my
Christmas box. Some had been in there Donkey's yrs.
The bell especially.
It was badly scratched but a covering of Versamark
and very fine gold SU glitter worked a treat.
And the insides slotted in 3 together
to save space and boring you all to bits!.
So how did I do with my pile of scraps?
Well I can close the lid on the strips now!
but the next size up pile of scraps
has hardly had a dent made in it!
O'h well. Back to the drawing board.
