Die Cut Snippets Christmas

Hello everyone.  Popping in quickly to share a Christmas card made with leftover snippets from my stash.  There is no stamping and all dies are from Memory Box.


Took a Bristol panel with a circle die cut in the center from my stash and die cut over the circle opening with the Winter Tree Oval image die to create an oval aperture.  I wanted to use the oval frame left over from this Winter card.  The row of white trees were unused from this Northern Lights card when I thought black trees were more appropriate.

The watercolour background was one of my experimental pieces when playing around with the Raining Watercolors technique.  Just added snow to it with a white gel pen.  The silver foil peace sentiment was initially for this AI vellum card, but a blue foil sentiment edged it out.  Assembled onto a white top folding card base to finish.

Sadly, this amount of snippets from my stash didn’t even put a dent in it. 😆   Thank you for taking time out of your busy holiday season to visit.  Enjoy your holiday.

Trina, I am loving these cards you've done in blue for Christmas. They are all beautiful and this sky is so pretty. I need to go look up the raining watercolor technique because it made such a stunning card. Merry Christmas to you!

Okay, I'm back. I do remember that card from before. I must not have paid attention to the name of the technique but it gets wonderful results. Something new to try in the new year. I'm all carded out right now!
