Christmas Card ~ Coffee or Tea? (post #1)

I challenged myself to make as much as I could from one piece of 12 x 12 design paper.
I found that if I just make a project or card from the paper I just end up filing away the scraps and it can be years if ever before I get back to it.
My scraps are getting out of control. lol
I have baggies here and there waiting for me to separate and put them where they belong.
I started a new filing system that I {try to} use each time now but sometimes it just goes in a baggie. whoopsie.

I was able to complete two cards and two note holders and still have enough scrap to make one or two cards left over from my 12 x 12 paper.
You will probably see a series of note holders and cards because I'm trying to work on some stock for a bazaar I do every December. I like to start making things in July so the pressure is less as the day approaches.

Here is the first card.
This one is a Christmas card and I tried to play off the holly leaves in the design so I used my holly and berry stamp for accents.


*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Design paper strip from the DCWV Christmas and Winter Stack 12 x 12 pad.
*Sentiment frame is cut from the Mini Bookplate Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Holly, berry and sentiment stamps from CTMH.
*CTMH stamp pad Ponderosa Pine.

May your day always be filled with love.
