Christmas Cards

The theme for day 3 of JYC is Christmas cards, so i chose one of the cards Hannah made a couple of weeks ago and used it on my page.

I made an envelope out of patterned paper, put a journalling block and some ric rac inside, and used a Basic Grey magnetic closure on the flap ( i love these, and as the pages won't be in page protectors this interactive bit of the LO is great to play with!)

The title is stamped onto a Nestability Label 1, cut, embossed and hand stitched, the stamps are Banana Frog Pharmacy. Also BF stamp is the postmark, that's been a really useful kit in the 2 years i've had it. I also used a Martha Stewart punch to make the border, and doodled around the edge a little.

Calendar stamp is by Unity (sadly i've had to cancel my subscription today as money is so tight, and another job doesn't seem to be around the corner yet) with Gromlets to mark the date.

I've just realised i will run out of gromlets before the journal is complete, so have advertised on UKS to see if anyone is willing to sell me some.
Thanks for looking, see you tomorrow!

Oh Ann! I feel for you - I've had to cancel all my subscriptions too(to me Club Scrap was what Unity stamps were to you).
I have,however, loads of gromlets etc from when I bought the Big Bite - please just let me know what size/colour you want and I'll send them (don't want paying- just hope you'll return the favour if necessary - what goes around comes around!)
