Christmas Snowmen and Using up Scraps

Updated: Thanks to Art Impressions for choosing this card as Top Spot in their Circle Elements Challenge!


Hello everyone!  How have you been lately? I am hoping all of you that were in the path of the hurricane weathered the storm okay.  We just got a little rain from it, no big deal.

I have been busy making a lot of cards, and will be sharing them probably over the next two weeks.  Hopefully I can keep up on this pace of cardmaking - I am enjoying myself!


You might have seen the cute monster card I posted last week.  Well, when I was doing that background, I also started with this Christmas background in the same design.  I added a cute snowman to it, adding white flocking to parts of the image how I like to.



Well, then I happened to see Art Impressions new challenge which is circle elements.  Well, as my little snowman is from their company, I thought why not try a similar card with scraps, but punch circles.  (This is what I really love about card challenges!) This next card is what I came up with.



I was happy to use up so many paper scraps. I knew I was saving them for a reason! LOL!
I’d also like to add this to Pixie’s Crafty Workshop’s Snippets challenge #335.

Supplies:  Art Impressions Christmas Snowman SC0738 stamp and die set, Memento and Versafine Black inks, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, various patterned paper scraps, EK Success 1.25 inch square punch and 1 inch circle punch, Inkadinkado white flocking.

Thank you so much for your visit today, and double thanks if you had time to leave a comment. If there is a link through your comment to your blog, I always like to visit you and see what you are making, too.  Have a great day!
