Christmas Cards - Narrow

My lovely friend Di, sent me a huge box of cards to use for my charity cardmaking, as I was getting low on cardstock. I've managed to find some in a Sale in a Garden Centre, there was 15 cards in a pack and they were reduced to 50p each - so I nabbed all seven that were left!!! LOL!

Anyway in the box was some narrow cards, not my usual type, but I'm always willing to try new things so came up with a few ideas - the first of which is above with some Kanban toppers Di also sent me in my Christmas goody box - thanks Di!
I used my 'Bum Punch' on these and then put some Christmas braid around the corners to highlight the stickers. These stickers were 12 in a pack for 99p last Christmas. I knew I'd find a use for them this time round!

The backing papers were free in a Scrapbooking magazine I got at a Craft Event many years ago and never got around to using. This time they've all gone!

The gold sentiments are rub ons for a change, not peel off's that I normally use. I had some rub ons before but had real problems using them, but these ones are so easy to use and a delight to put on cards. I've used most of them now.

This sentiment was made on the PC, and then matted and layered. If you want more details on these then let me know, as I have a few Christmas ones to add in I've decided not to put the full listing on here or else I'll be here forever.
As I said though, if you want more details on certain items, just let me know.

Hi Di
Yes these are the gold ones you sent me, they are a delight to use, and so easy. Have taken word verification off now, so will see if it's better for you next time! Thanks, Karen x
