Bah Humbug Challenge 18

The Bah Humbug challenge this week is to use punched borders - I don't have a seasonal border punch but I do have an Xcut snowflake punch which I've used with their border system to punch a border strip in gold mirri card. Incidentally using mirri card has reminded me that I should clean the glass on my scanner more often!! This border system has presumably now been discontinued along with their original punches because their new punches are now a different shape altogether and can't be used with the gadget which is so useful for spacing rows of punched motifs. The image is a clear stamp which was on offer from Pollycraft recently, coloured with Copics and glittered. Sentiment was done on the computer and punched with Stampin Up ovals. Background paper by Papermania from a couple of years ago.


  1. A real 'funky' christmas card...gosh our pile of christmas cards is certainly growing.


  2. Ooooooh ... your background paper looks gorgeous peeking through the punched snowflakes. Thank you for playing along at Bah! Humbug! this week.

    Bah! Humbug! DT

  3. Great card Val - love the backing paper. I hadn't thought about the Xcut border system being defunct now........... might try to get some of the punches that do fit so I can make more use of it.

  4. Lovely card, the snowflakes are so effective against the Bp. lots of love Steph

  5. Hello Val

    What a fantasitc idea to use snowflakes as a
    border with your gorgeous design paper peeking out, and an adorable sweet image to complete a perfect card.

    Thank you for joining us at Bah!Humbug!


  6. Love the stamp (I bought that too - what a bargain) and your card is just fabulous. I never got that border system but always thought it looked good and was very tempted. Shame if it's no longer available. Love what you have done with it.
