ISSC 35 - Handmade Holiday

I cant believe September is almost over!!  Where has the month gone.  One thing I have noticed is a lot more Christmas paper arriving at Scrappy Hollow where I work.  So this week I decided it was time to get a start on Christmas cards and the iSpy sketch was just perfect!

The sketch this week is inspired by Audrie Magno-Gordon (girlgeek101 @ SCS) and is based on this card.

Here is the sketch:
This is the card I created:

For this card I used the Simple Stories Handmade Holiday 6x6 paper pad and matching snap cards.  The snap cards are just perfect for the background and the 6x6 paper pad had the miniaturised patterned paper and mini embellishment tags which co-ordinated perfectly together. 

I added a button and some ribbon that I found at a local patchwork store and within 15minutes the card was done! With so many cards to make this will definitely be my favourite design layout for those quick and easy cards.

So why not play along with me and the other special agents at iSpy!

  2. Wonderful card Leanne, I love the papers and colours you used. The santa is so cute, he looks like the little cookie :).

  3. Hi Leanne,

    What a fun and festive card and such a great take on the sketch. I can see you lavished loads of extra special touches on your card and it certainly was worth it! Eye catching and warm all at the same time!
