A Pebbles Christmas Card

One of my favorite things to do is to use my scraps from other projects, I find it's so much easier to see unique combinations of colors and patterns when you are playing with the smaller pieces like scraps. I love that I can make several cards with my scraps, and my throw away is minimal, what a great way to save money and paper! I put these two red and green papers together and thought it was just a fun and pretty Christmas combo, making a card came easy once I was inspired to add a little kraft cardstock to the mix. Adding this large ribbon and bow really gives my card a lot of punch too!! I also used foam tabs on the chipboards, not just for the dimension they add, but now my card has more sticking power to stay well adhered."



Pebbles supplies used:
Tree House Melody (751030) 
Twitterpated Giddy (751005)

Other supplies used:

Cardstock (American Crafts)
Flower (Petaloo)
Ink (Ranger)
Mist (Tattered Angels)

Wonderful card!! I love the colors and the bow!! I think for next years Christmas cards that I make all throughout the year, I will try to use up all my Christmas paper scraps...my pile is getting so big!! How do you store your scraps so that they are easy to reach for when doing small projects? TIA! Colleen
