The Snowman's Christmas Tree

      After making nearly 75 Christmas cards to donate to my local Seniors Center, I had scraps of small this and that lying all over my work table so I dug out all of my metal Christmas dies and started cutting up the scraps.  Before I knew it, I had another dozen cards and a plastic baggie full of cut but not yet used pieces.  :-D

     It seems that each card I put together became a favorite but I think this one best shows off what can be made from simple scraps of plain CS.  The snowman dies are from Cheery Lynn and the tree die is made by Dee's Distinctively.  I cut the tree twice from 2 different shades of green and when layered all together, it almost looks like there's snow on the tree.

     The sentiment was cut with Die-Versions dies.


     That's all for today.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

A very striking card with the dramatic black triangle backdrop for the die cut snowman and tree.

Waving hello from the Snippets Playground Treehouse.

Fabulous Connie! I do think snippets/scraps lend themselves to itty bitty die cut images. I have a fabulous die set coming up around Christmas Day or so - it's fun and will make you smile, and I should have a sample card, even if you don't play along for or it :)

I've hopped over from Pixie's to see your card. I love the contrast of the black and white. All those little die cuts are wonderful. Great use of snippets and so many cards made from them. Wonderful work!
