Christmas Card #2

Lucky you! Since it's Sunday, I'm sharing another Christmas Card I made as a member of the Christmas Card Challenges DT.  This week the theme is: Polka Dots.  I used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder to create my polka dots.

Long story to this card, but I'll try to keep it short. I made a resolution this year to use up items I've already 'cut / punched / stamped / embossed / etc'  since I have too many half-finished projects taking up precious space. 
I found the embossed cardstock with a partial circle already punched (not sure what my original plan was for this piece). And I found the digi snowman, by TiddlyInks, already printed and cut out.  So I colored him up with Copics. Then I found this scrap piece of DP and green CS and the card was born.

After using the plaid DP on the front, I only had a small strip left, so I had to improvise on the inside.  I carried the dotted embossed paper to the inside, but punched a partial circle so I could write a message easier. I sponged around the edges using Memento Bamboo Leaves.

Now for the "honesty" part . . . I had the front all put together, then realized that I didn't like the sentiment (from Stamp Fairyon top of the embossed CS. So, I lifted the corner (thank goodness my dimensionals had not "set" yet and I was still able to pull it apart), and I punched another partial circle for the sentiment.
Four of my "old" stash used up . . . only 239 pieces left to go (or thereabouts). {smile}

  1. I like this card... A LOT! I keep seeing similarly cut-out cards on Pinterest that I save for future inspiration, but have not yet done one. Yours is super cute! :)

  2. It's like all those elements were just waiting to be put together, Heather! What a terrific card.

  3. Hello Heather...This is such a wonderful make and great job making use of your scraps and die-cuts. Anyway, I am happy to hear from you again after you left me some wonderful words in my Blog for my sour cream containers. I am delighted that you like what you saw and I know you will have fun making them to give away on your get-together with friends. It really was easy to make. I am also doing a lot better and was even able to attend Church early today (Sunday). God is so good! Hugs always...
