Cards and Tags

Challenge #3 at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge is to use Little Bits Card Challenge.  Now I am sad to say that I always have little bits and pieces on my desk. Yes my desk is a mess - if there was a challenge for that I would win hands down.  So I made 4 cards and 3 tags for this challenge. They are all from the same Unity Kit of the Month Stamp Set that was on my desk.

Oh Christmas Tree Card:
The stripe Christmas paper was already embossed as I was trying to make a different card and just couldn't get it to work, but it works great here.


Bird Cards:
The pattern paper was left over from the Elephant Matchboxes I made last month.  The lace and trims are always on my desk in a jar as they are scraps.


I used the same trims, card base and pattern paper for these two cards. 


Christmas Lights Card:
This is the same pattern paper from above but I've added the blue punched paper.  The punch was on my desk from the last layout I was working on. 


Season's Greetings Tags:
The dark brown cardstock was from the "Today is the Day" layout


I do have a few things that were not on my desk: the markers, the circle dies, and the dark red cardstock for the bird card bases, the unfortunately was on my desk. Now I'm going to clean my desk and put a few things away.

Thanks for stopping by.

Great job! I don't make cards normally but am considering trying to use up the remainder of my papers from my kit. Looks like you killed your kit!
