And Cut ...




I have carried on with my Christmas cards for this weeks DCM dare;

Any theme goes, so for those of you needing a break from Christmas crafting this is the perfect opportunity to have a change. All styles are welcome but there MUST be an element of handcutting somewhere. It could be a greeting, a shape, letters printed on your pc and handcut, anything goes as long as you did it by hand.
I am not a big fan of hand cutting, but I do hand cut these letters by tracing round the BG chipboard letters first. I wish I could afford to buy these and use them on my cards but they are tooooo expensive to use all the time, so I keep a chipboard set which I use as templates. I have used BG fruitcake papers, and a few embellishments for the letters. I actually cut and decorated 2 identical sets as I want to make a different card using the same word.
Off now to have a look at the other cards.
