Patchwork Christmas ♥

Good Morning, friends!

Just one more week and it's Christmas!
How fast this year flew by.
But I am happy to say, this year I'm ready :)

Today's card using The Project Bin stamps is a little bit different.
I've seen quite a few of these types of Christmas tree cards
and decided to try one, putting my own touches on it.
Since I've been making Christmas cards, I've had a lot of little holiday scraps.
And buttons. 
Oh, I have lots and lots of buttons!

I'm so guilty of tossing the scraps most of the time due to limited space.
However, here's a way to use them up!
Using those smaller pieces, odds and ends and tidbits,
add them to a card in a creative way.

I created this card by gathering up all the little tidbits of papers
that had been collecting in my little basket.
I first cut white cardstock in A2 size, then ran kraft cardstock through 
the cuttlebug with a die cut.

Carefully layering the papers in a random pattern,
I measured out the angles and cut those to size with my trimmer.
Once in place, I added tombo to keep them from moving
and added buttons from my big container, again, just randomly.

The wonderful Merry Christmas sentiment is on the inside of the card ↓
and it's from Maybe Christmas stamp set from The Project Bin.
It's stamped out using the stamping platform
 and Altenew Crisp Black ink for a bold look.

This card reminds me of how unique the holidays are ~
different for everyone. 
As I was creating this card, I kept singing to myself a song I grew up with
that has special meaning to me.
The song Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton was on the radio so often
when I was a child and I could often relate to it ~
sometimes not having enough WAS enough ♥
The true meaning of Christmas often gets lost in the shuffle
and giving from the heart is what matters most ♥

I hope this week brings you merriment and holiday wonder!

Big hugs, bigger blessings!
