Christmas cards for me.............

A while back I picked up a copy of the Australian Simply Cards magazine - Issue 72 which had with it the Bo Bunny Silver and Gold stamp set and paper stack. When it came to starting my own cards then I pulled it out because it was on my desk and started to play.

As I often do with these kind of paper and stamp sets, I take the lead of the designer in the magazine and try their versions out first to get a feel for working with the items. So, the first batch of five cards are my versions of the magazine designs, most of which stayed fairly close to the original design.

After that I then went on to my own designs and play adding in the use of some Kaisercraft and Technique Tuesday greetings, German scrap and border stickers. Even the Stampin' Up Merry thinlet got a look in as well as a couple of Cricut die-cuts and small Kaisercraft rub-ons.

Feel free to ask if you want any specifics. At first I wasn't too sure about the papers but now I have settled into them I am quite enjoying using them. I still have another four to photograph and share soon and there is enough paper left for a few more yet. Not bad really for freebies so thank you Australian Simply cards.

Have a great weekend and Happy Craftin'.........
