Scrappy Christmas JR 61

 What a fun challenge from JustRite this time....create a card using leftover scraps.  The only thing "new" on this card is the embossed (PSX Claret) " Merry Christmas"  from JR's Christmas Nested Frames and Occassions set.  (had to find a sentiment to fit the Spellbinder Fancy Label)  I've been wanting to make a tissue flower like I'd seen on Becca's blog (www.amazingpapergrace.com)  and had a piece of dusky gold tissue left over from unwrapping an internet order.... perfect.  I cut out 3 sizes of Spellbinders Blossom 3 shapes and pierced them in the center and used a brad to secure.  After fluffing the "petals", I secured a glitzy gold "button" on top of the brad.  Leftover ribbon, silk leaves, a label  I'd cut out at some time from a gold vellum like paper, a couple of pearls and dewdrops and the flower (of course) all were placed on a scrap of leftover Christmas wrapping paper.  The whole was then attached to a red(ish) card base.  ooops..the card base is new too! 
  Now, one additional picture...when I read Sharon's comment and picture of her workspace I had to laugh....Nooo...my workspace rarely looks that neat.  Mine is more like "mad crafter" at work and I always seem to have my helper to contend with.  So, here is my work space....


  1. The card turned out to be very festive. The red seems to finish it off. ...and that helper is pretty cute.

  2. Ha-ha -- your space looks like MINE! Don't ever think I don't have a TON of scraps scattered all around -- if ONLY I can find the color I need!!! My craft table is our 90" oak dining table from 1984 and that's with only 1 leaf in it. I use the other 2 stacked at one end as my cutting/die cutting-height area! Your card is GORGEOUS; I especially LOVE that gold tissue flower!!!
