Here's my project I created for this challenge:

So this week's challenge was to use your forgotten stash.  So as I went through my craft room, I found some retired Christmas paper called "Jingle".  I decided to use as many of the scraps as I could and ended up making a set of 6 Christmas cards!  So happy to get a start on that early this year.  

This Gatefold Card folds into an A2 size or 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I used our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut out the mats and the "HoHoHo".  The sentiment came from page 79, E9, Shift, < HoHoHo > cut at 3".  The mats were cut from page 80, E10, Shift, Accent 3, < HoHoHo > cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" and 2 3/4" x 5" using the Fit to Length key.  If you look closely, you will see I used the Perfect Fit - Holidays stamp set to stamp on the sentiment to give it a little "texture".

I loved this challenge because it made me go through my craft room.  I found so many half packs of paper, etc.  I am determined to make a dent in my stash -- you should too.  Don't forget to join  our challenge this week - would love to see what you make out of YOUR forgotten stash.

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
