Patterned Paper Images for Christmas cards

I have quite a few patterned paper packs that have sheets with images or labels on them. I have always just passed these by, assuming that scrapbookers have a better use for them.  But today I decided to cut up a couple from this Christmas pack and use them as a focal point on my card.

I just added stickles glitter and added a frame.  The background is a stamp in white ink. Super easy cards and even though I sortof felt like I was cheating with the focal points, the stamper in me was happy with the background.

Supplies: Penny Black Christmas Story stamp, American Crafts Let it Snow 6x6 paper pad, Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Sentiment set 3, Versafine Onyx Black ink, Avery Elle white ink, Stickles glitter glue

I would love to participate in ScrappyMo's Rudolph Days for May and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge,  too!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is a great idea! I like the paper embellishment sections of paper pads. Sometimes there are two sheets that match...then i can fussy cut and layer them.

Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph Days Challenge.

These two cards with the cute snowman and santa are very pretty Heidi, and I love the word stamp you have used in the backgrounds which works perfectly. Thank you for joining in with the May Rudolph Days Challenge. x

Great cards. Good use of DP. Like you, I leave my 12 x 12 decorated DP alone, but now that's going to change. Thanks for the inspiration.
