Cards On A Budget.
By Renee Ybarra
Bo Bunny Cardstock Winter Cut Out
Coordinating paper
Coordinating ribbons
Coordinating Colorbox Chalk Ink
Diamond Stickles
I found this Bo Bunny Winter Joy Cut Outs
sheet of cardstock paper at my local scrap
book shop. I loved the colors and seen a quick
easy way to make a few cards for pennies
each with stuff you probably already have in
your stash.
I cut up the cardstock.
Then I stickled everything I could or though needed
a little sparkle...Like the centers of the snow flakes
the Christmas bulbs and little dots I seen. I just bling-
ed it up to make it look sparkly!
Tied some coordinating ribbon.
Inked the edges.
Matted the smaller pieces to coordinating cardstock.
I made 5 cards and 3 small gift cards (not pictured)
all for .99 cents and supplies I already had. Talk about
a budget. Who said it has to cost a fortune to make a
pretty card?
Happy Holidays to all!!!
