Patchwork Christmas

As soon as I saw the sketch at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown I thought it would be a great way to use up some snippets, so I'm hopping over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.   I'm also entering this month's Sparkles Christmas Challenge which is 'Use kraft card'.

Card blank: 7" x 7" kraft 
Die: Snowflake (magazine freebie)
Card: Kraft 
Other: Hemptique Bakers Twine
Snippets: Papers 

I cut a square of kraft card slightly smaller than the card blank and, following the sketch, attached various papers leaving a small gap between each paper.   I wrapped bakers twine around the card, tied it into a bow and then attached it to the card blank with foam tape.  I die-cut a snowflake and attached it under the bow with a few dots of tacky glue.

Hi Kath, found you via Mrs A. Challenge... And peeked below, you really have an eye for the unusual and are able to skilfully share it, great to see originality - have joined your blog and hope that you might pop over to mine too, and if you like what you see, join it too.
