susie's and vikki's christmas club challenge 9

as Easter is quickly approaching, i am busily preparing Christmas cards, yeah! that's right!   i am back to participating in the challenge at susie and vikki's christmas club challenge.  the theme for this week's challenge is BAUBLES. i am still trying to use my stash of products to create cards and as i always recycle old christmas cards,  i am using these items for my cards today. 

two of the cards are frame cards bought on clearance from michael's years ago.  where normally you would put a photo in the frame, here i have cut down on old card where the colours of the bauble  matched the frame card exactly and then added a star shaped brad purchased many years ago at the dollar store.

the next card again is the frame card where i used the snowflake embossing folder  on a piece of white cardstock from my scraps and inserted it into the frame as a background. i  added a painted wooden snowman and then attached alphabet letters to baubles to spell "joy"

this card is composed of two old christmas cards, the white one has the cut out window which i have pop dotted and layered over a second christmas card, finally adding them to a brown card that i embossed just the top with swiss dots.  i will later add a heat embossed sentiment to the lower right hand corner!


  1. These are cute cards!!! I like that you recycled them from old cards -- I'll have to remember that!!! TFS!

    Well, I guess you'll be all ready for Christmas! Smart!!! Myself, I always wait for the last minute to get everything done! Not smart -- LOL!!
