ABC Christmas Challenge

I made these two cards before I went to look at the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog but then I saw their challenge was "Anything Christmas Goes" so I thought as they qualify I might as well put them up for it!

I have set myself the added challenge of using up some of those scraps of papers that I've been clinging onto for years. Yes we all have them don't we?! The papers for this one are so old I can't remember who they are by I think it might be Basic Grey but please correct me if I'm wrong.

The topper is by Kanban and I bought them as a cheat because I was so ill on the run up to Christmas and I still had loads of cards to make after Ellie pinched all mine for her school friends.

For the second card the papers are by Blonde Moments and the topper is another Kanban but one my Mum got for me.
I just added some faux stitching around the edges of the squares of paper so that they matched the sentiment. I used up some more scraps on this one too!
