Noel


The new Crafty Cardmakers challenge has been set for us by Viv  the theme is Paper Piecing.

As I am now into making a start to my Christmas cards, this Woodware stamp  is just right  for using  up small pieces of paper . The base card was  fancy edged all the way around to begin with, but an accident involving  acrylic paints  had me reaching for the trimmer. As you can see it was random stamped  before I added the layers.  The papers all came from my  box of stuff that might one day be useful.
First I stamped up the image onto the plain paper , then again onto the  smaller pieces. I only had enough of the red for two letters..
After fussy cutting out the letters it was an easy card to assemble..

Please pop over for all the details of the challenge, and see what our sponsors  Saturated Canary and Woodware  are generously offering.
