Christmas Scrapling

Good Morning!!!!  This week's Christmas Festival in July at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog is going strong!  Today is my day to share a fun little way to make a gift tag for your Christmas gifts.  It's called a scrapling and you can use this idea all throughout the year.  It's so easy and a great way to use up all those little scraps too!

One sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock will make the bases for two 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square cards and two 1 1/4 x 4 1/4 scraplings.  Just cut your cardstock in half to make two regular 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 card bases.  Go ahead and score the fold in your cards.  Then cut a 1 1/4 strip off of one end.

Now you are ready to create your projects.  Two cards, two scraplings!  One thing about this size greeting card is that it will fit inside a regular envelope rather than needing a square envelope.  Saves you money on envelopes and postage!  Every little bit helps!  

The scrapling I made matches a card you will see on Sunday for one of our Christmas Around the Clock challenges.  Hope you will join us for more Christmas in July Cuttlebug Fun!  I added a layer of red and then a layer of white embossed with the Provocraft Cuttlebug Holly Ribbons Embossing Folder #37-1927.  The word Joy is masked from a set called Peace and Joy from Our Daily Bread designs and is cut out and matted with a Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle die.  The snowflakes are Provocraft Cuttlebug
Die 2x2 Snowflake #2 #37-1538.  I added glitter and red rhinestones and attached to the scrapling.  I punched a hole at the top and threaded ribbon through to finish the tag!

Well, what do you think?  Fun?  I hope you enjoyed this little project and that you are inspired to create these for your gifts during the holidays and all through the year!  Thanks for joining me today and hope you have a wonderful day!
