Christmas Leftovers

 Hello again, 

Summer is in full force here in NSW again, I've finally had to swap pants for shorts, we have had temperatures down as low as 9C here up until now (31C), less summer more winter. Glad that there are only 4 fires currently burning in NSW, not like this time last year with the number of Bushfires and how close they were to our home. 

I've been trying to use up the ends of a 6" paper pad currently sitting on my desk, it has just one sheet that is whole, the rest are bits and pieces of varying sizes, I have used up some of the strips to cover two pieces of pre-cut card to fit a C7 card blanks, I did the same with some bits from a second Christmas paper pad that also had many bits where I'd die cut shapes from leaving narrow pieces to make two more Christmas cards for my stash for 2021....

Doodlebug Design 'North Pole' paper pad

Couture Creations 'Be Merry and Classic' paper pad

What I used:-
Doodlebug 'North Pole' Paper pad
CCD Merry Christmas die
Clearly Besotted 'Jingle Bells' Stamp and die (sand, cocoa and cardinal red ink pads)
black fine line pen
White card scraps
Couture Creations 'Be Merry and Classic' paper pad
Black, cream, gold and distress oxide scrap papers 
MFT Little town of Bethlehem Die
MFT Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp
MFT sentiment strip die
MFT Stitched circle die
Clear embossing ink
Gold Embossing powder

I would like to enter these cards in:
Reindeer Card-
12 Months of Christmas Link-up #73 Anything goes optional Clean and Simple
Bethlehem card:
Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge Anything goes optional Stockings

Thank you for looking in...
Have a wonderful weekend..
