Hi everyone! It's my turn to be hostess at The Paper Players and I have chosen a theme challenge, Christmas in July! I thought what better way to cool off in this hot, humid weather than with a nice frosty Christmas card, lol!
Remember that tiny bag of patterned paper scraps that I mentioned about a week ago? Well I'm still trying to finish it off. This card uses the tiniest of scraps to make a patchwork background for my little bird on a tree. If you are going to try this, here's a quick tip: It's easier to apply the adhesive to the background rather than the patterned paper, and when you are done you can just trim off the edges with your paper cutter. I felt like this card had a lot going on on the outside already, so I saved my sentiment for the inside.
