Surprise everyone and hi! It's me, Tonya and I'm here to share a Christmas card I created using leftover scraps of cardstock. Christmas is right around the eight weeks away...and for the next few weeks I will be sharing a quick Christmas project on the Robin's Nest to inspire you all. :-)

I started with a 5 1/2"x6" folded piece of Distressed Trees Specialty Paper (tree part cut off). The following scraps of cardstock I used on this card is as follows: Green Grass Glitter CardstockWrap Glitter CardstockLeaf Stripe CardstockForest Trees Specialty Paper (back side of paper), Sour Apple Glitter Cardstock. I inked and adhered a 4" doily to the upper corner of the card and then placed the scraps around on the card until I liked the way it looked and then glued to the card. If you are uncomfortable "winging" layers on a card you can find sketches on Pinterest to go by.

I also fussy cut a Green Glitter Journaling card out, cut in half and inked the edges. I cut and adhered scraps of cardstock to cover the lines on the card. I printed the merry sentiment from the computer. I cut out and inked the edges, glued it to the journaling card along with a red sequin and a Fresh Mowed Grass Dew Drop

The Santa image I had rubber stamped and used pastels to color the image over a year ago but never got around to using it. I thought it would be the perfect addition to the card. I added a little Stickles for a glittery look, distressed the edges of the image, adhered thread and the silver thread from the Rosy Straw package to finished off the card.
