Scotties for Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine



Now that a new issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine is out I can share the cards I made for last month's issue. I had to create a sketch and make three cards using the Little Claire Scottie stamps. The papers are First Edition Vintage Noel. For this one I used a wooden snowflake, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and a Memory Box banner die.


This one has baker's twine and a snowflake charm along with MS punched snowflakes and pearls.


For this one I used three different MS snowflakes punches.

I would like to enter the three cards into the following challenges.

Simon Says Monday Throwback (Dec 2014 holiday card)

I am super busy at the moment. A lady phoned yesterday as she bought some cards and a gift from me at the hospital shop and picked up my business card. She ordered some special Christmas cards and two gifts. I also had two magazine commissions come in this week and need more stock for Christmas fairs. Must do some ironing this morning then a crafting day for me.
