Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. I know we did: dinner with friends, good conversation and some challenging card playing.
This week's Paper Cutz Challenge (see link on right) is an anything goes. Total freedom to create holiday items that you still need or an excuse to do a birthday card or something else that isn't red and green = maybe scrap a page of those summer pictures you know haven't made it out of the envelope yet.
Above, I have used a Matchbook (Sarapapers at Paper Wishes) to make a Christmas card that will also hold a gift card. It opens like a match book. then two "doors" open to reveal the final inside message and/or image. On this one I use three different papers. On others I have used 3 coordinating papers. They are a lot of fun to do for holiday gifts or even Birthday and other occasions. Since they are square, a square card require extra postage. However it will fit in a standard envelope for a 5 x 7 card and not incur that "squarepostage" Have fun experimenting this week.
