Have you ever looked at how fabulous this Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Happy Holidays paper could be if it were turned into 4 sets of cards? Thats good budgeting :P

Image

Just cut out each picture including the surrounding background...
And mount them on some folded pattern paper or cardstock.
Image

I've added a little extra onto each card

On both the next two cards I've used as the card base - Basic Grey Wassail 'Olive Branch (Basic Grey background paper - no matter how old...its like that classic black dress!) Sentiments - Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Sticker Sheet, String and Red ribbon Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Trim. The Sparkle - Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Rhinestones -see the red sparkly belt around Santa's middle?
Image

And can your see the rhinestones around the back part of the ladies collar and on the hung Christmas sign? :D
Image


The last two photos have a Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium Merry and Bright paper as a base to the card. The sentiments are Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Chipboard Elements and Sparkle - Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Rhinestones See the little silver trims to two of the little boy's pj's and Santa has a rhinestone on his scarf as with the candle - to represent a 'flame'.

Image


And the rhinestones are found on the Christmas tree :P
Image

Loving that Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage collection too!
