My reason for them all being different is I'm trying to just use up the cardstock, ribbons and embellishments that I have on hand that are leftovers or just never used before I go out and purchase pieces. I have also recycled a few Christmas cards from years past. Hacking them up for parts and then creating pieces with those parts.
Here are a few of the cards I worked on tonight that are my favorites. The first one photographed funky. It's a solid red on the left, but since it's that metallic paper you can see the reflection of whatever was next to me while taking the pic.
