Getting Corrugated....

My dare this week is to use some corrugated card on your card - it could be corrugated craft card or an old box etc. taken to pieces :) You could make the card blank from it or die cut shapes etc...

Hhmm I don't know how Jo Kill does it, but she even manages to make corrugated card look trendy on a card! Well actually everything Jo puts on a card looks great!
I'm not a fan of corrugated card because it reminds me of some of the first cards that I made which to be honest were quite pants really!!!! I thought I had thrown away all my corrugated card but I found a few old bits in my scrap box, right down at the bottom! I used a sizzix die for the holly and a small round punch for the berry. The pp came from some blog candy and these are the last few scraps of it- it's lovely stuff with glitter on it. I finished off with a bit of stitching and a few rub ons.
I am getting a bit bored with making Christmas cards now, I don't think I will be making all of mine, I will have to buy a box as well.

This is a really great card Sarah, but I know exactly what you mean about Christmas cards and I had to go searching my son's craft box to find corrugated card!
