Day 21 at Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas - Use Scraps

     Much as I love the alphabet prompts for the 30 Days of Christmas at Beccy's Place, when Beccy said to "Use Scraps," that was right up my alley!  I love using scraps.  It means I buy fewer papers overall but at the same time, it makes me feel justified in buying new paper stacks when supplies get low.  No, of course that's not a justification!  lol

     This card is made entirely from scraps, including the piece of CS on which I printed the image and the one from which I cut the sentiment.

     After I shared in my previous post that it doesn't snow where I live, here I am doing another of my typical Christmas cards featuring snow and snow people.  Maybe it's because we don't have snow on the ground that I feel so drawn to it for Christmas cards.


Colored with ProMarkers and gel inks
Cut with QuicKutz dies
Matted with scalloped die from Memory Box
Faux stitching done with white gel pen
Background scrap papers from DCWV (I think)
Sentiment die cut with Die-namics die

    Challenges:

Crafty Sentiments

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

I really love this adorable snow family!! Your papers and glittery sentiment go perfectly with this design! :) Snow is great until I have to "deal with it"...then not "snow" much!! LOL!!

What cute little snow family! I love the colours you've used & I love that you've used scraps too! I love using scraps or challenging myself to see what I can create with just one sheet of DP.

Good on you for creating such a fabulous card completely from scraps and off-cuts NC! I agree that it's a great way to save money, plus it's good for the environment too. I love those beautiful background papers, the deep blue is gorgeous. The frame looks wonderful around the image panel, I really like that stitched scallop.
It doesn't snow where I live either NC, and Christmas falls in the summer, but I also love to make snowmen cards!
Cheers,
Beccy

Nice that the family is posed for a family portrait. Like the background papers and the die cut scallops around the image. Is it me, or does that family look really cold!?!
