Again, I really hope you aren't all sick of Christmas cards because I continue to be on a roll and there doesn't seem much sense in stopping as it is such a nice feeling to get the stash going so early in the New Year. I continue to feel so inspired by all the fabulous challenges right now! And besides, the Christmas themed stuff is still front and centre in my scrap room and is easily accessible, so here is another one!

A simple inside using one of my new and fabulous Unity sets.

I would like to share with:

Jingle Belles - no time like presents (use leftover gift tags, wrapping paper, etc.) - the focal point was a tag on one of my youngest son's gifts this year, I covered up the hole with some twine and a button - I actually managed to make hand-stamped tags for most of my gifts this year and had a blast doing it, yay!

Cute Card Thursday - What's New (Unity sentiment & patterned paper background)

Crazy 4 Challenges - When you look at this new craft room, what are the first things you think to put in it? (besides stamps and paper)

 - I thought first of my sewing machine and my Cricut, both of which I used on this card

Thanks so much for your visit!
Shanna :)

What I used:
patterned paper - Little Yellow Bicycle "Making Merry" 6x6 pack
recycled Christmas tag - silhouette image is from Cricut Cartridge "A Child's Year"
machine stitching, baker's twine, random button
sentiment inside: Unity "Let's be Jolly" grab bag


  1. Love that silhouette ... and what a clever embellishment to cover-up the hole ... so very glad you're starting 2015 with us at Jingle Belles.

  2. Clever, clever girl! Very cute tag, great card built around it, and nice "embellishment opportunity" - well done!

  3. Love that silhouette image and how you camouflaged the hole. Wonderfully done!

  4. I love these silhouette images you use!!! Love the red on the background paper :)

  5. You are rocking the Christmas cards Shanna. I like the effect from the silhouette against the rest of the cad, with the sentiment. X

  6. Once again you've created another fabulous Christmas card. I love the black on just pops! I look forward to seeing your next Christmas creation!

  7. i NEVER get sick of seeing clever & beautiful hand made holiday cards in general, or awesome shanna cards in particular, so keep 'em coming!!! love that you were able to re-use a tag that you actually made for last year. that's like it's craftiness... SQUARED!!! :) so pleased you could join our "no time like the presents" fun again at JINGLE BELLES! ♥

  8. Nice card! I love the simplicity of the word "LOVE" with the image.


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
