Old and New....

These cards are for the old and new challenge on the JB forum. The challenge was to make a card using some old papers and then a card using some new papers.

This Christmas card was made from the old papers. I bought these last year and they were one of those mistake buys. I have 100 12 x 12 sheets of various Christmas designs which I know I won't use! I picked out the best papers I could find but they are so thin!! Really not happy with the quality of this card, up close you can see where I have handled the paper!

The new paper is the Oh so lush Crate Samantha range of papers. I luuuuuurve all crate papers, they are thick, good quality and I love the textured feel and aged look they have to them.

I had to cut into a brand new sheet for this card!

I had good fun with this challenge!
