Christmas Cards for 2014 – Using Primark Gift Tags–Ding Dong Merrily …..

The hand cut card blank for each of these cards measures 5ins x 5ins and is made using a white linen effect card.

Ding Dong Merrily CardThe toppers for this set of cards are made using the “Ding Dong” design from a “luxury” pack of 24 gift tags (£1) from the Primark 2013 Christmas range. All I have done is cut the front off the tags and then mat and layered them on an assortment of scrap papers in matching colours and navy gingham card stock.

Hi Helen. Lovely cards. You are getting a good stock ready aren't you. I STILL haven't started mine, even though I vowed to make a few each week this year! Take care.
