BtCR January

Beat the Christmas Rush - I found this so helpful last year, so I have decided to do it again!

These are made with magazine papers, probably from Making Cards, they are at least a couple of years old.  Very simple - I made a background mat from some holly paper (Craft Creations) and some magazine bauble paper, used peel-off lines to frame the mats.  Then I cut out the images from the mag paper, matted them onto red cardstock and mounted to the base on 1mm foam tape.  The banners are die-cut  (Die-namics) and tucked under the image.  However, they did look as if they were just 'floating' ...... so I wrapped a band of gold ribbon around the base of the card to 'ground' them.  Job done :-)


  1. Me too! I was so pleased with myself come November. :) Ooh these cards are fabulous. The ribbon is doing its job and the banners are great - I must look for that die. Thanks so much for joining us again in Beat the Christmas Rush.
