Welcome to my blog, which one day, hopefully, should be filled with wonderful handmade card ideas! My goal is to create a blog with ideas for some easy, 'make-able' cards for you to take inspiration from! (It's what I've always needed to help me!)

Christmas Tag No. 2

It's starting to get very busy with exams, but I managed to quickly photograph this one and upload it between revision and family visits!

I used a plain triangle of off white card, and then rumaged through my snippets and found some patterned red and green papers from last Christmas (which means a quick trip to the playground!). I cut them into some quirky shapes, stuck them on and added a glittered star to top it off!


  1. A beautiful Christmas card Carys, I love the cut out tree it's a brilliant idea.

  2. Hi Carys, this is gorgeous - and such a clever idea too. thank you for coming to play again. Why don't you link this into Sandra's Rudolph Day challenge as well - there's a super little sealing wax kit thingy to be won. Most of the snippets girls also go there to join in:


    I love your falling snowflakes on the blog by the way, very festive :)

    Hugs, Di xx

  3. I love the falling snowflakes too! Your card is great...what a super idea to use a triangle card for the tree!

  4. Very clever, Carys! I love the whimsical way you cut your paper patterned tree layers!!

  5. Hi Carys . . . this is a terrific Christmas tree card. Congrats on using up some snippets.

    Loving your falling snow across your blog! Very festive.

    Good luck with your exams and if you get time . . . please feel free to enter this card to my Rudolph Day Challenge.
