Little Red Wagon Challenge #314 ~ Mix It Up!!

Good evening.  Due to some technical difficulties yesterday and the fact that I had to go work today I am late posting this.  All good now and I am glad to be able to participate.  There is a new challenge at Little Red Wagon today and Brenda is our hostess.  She is calling her challenge MIX IT UP ~ she wants to see three patterned papers on your projects.

I have a Christmas card that uses three patterned papers.  It is a great way to use up tiny scraps.  The card stock is from Recollections; the patterned paper is from Echo Park Very Merry Christmas.  Cuttlebug embossing folder is D'vine Swirls.  Banner die cut is Your Next Stamp and the sentiment is Hero Arts embossed with white embossing powder.  Twine is from my stash for the handles.  The tissue paper and bling were both white and I coloured them with a Copic marker to match the paper.  I think this would be a wonderful card to make in assembly line process and use as "the" card to send out.  I am still experimenting to see which one I want to use.  I have a few others I am working on as well.

And here is a side shot to see the dimension of the shopping bags:

Head on over to Little Red Wagon and see all the incredible inspiration from the other girlfriends and join us with a project of your own featuring three different patterned papers.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for dropping by.  It seems like lately all the crafting I have time for is my Wednesday design post.  I would like that to change but we shall see as I fear that things will just get busier at this time of year.  Enjoy the rest of your day!!


  1. I love this card! It is perfect for using up pieces of patterned paper. I also love using my Copic markers to color things other than stamped images. I have even used them to cover up a nick in the paint on my wall! (And I actually colored my hair with them once!!!)

  2. Heather, this is a great use of scraps! I love the little shopping bags. It would make a beautiful Christmas card to mass produce and think of the scraps you would get rid of!

  3. What adorable little bags. Very cute idea.

  4. Wow!! Whose are such cute bags Heather!! :)

  5. Wonderful card! Those little bags are cool.
