Christmas Cuties at Sparkles Christmas

It's time for our May challenge at Sparkles Christmas and this time our theme is Christmas Cuties.

This card was made using a gift pack that came with one of the craft magazines a few Christmases ago. There was a selection of papers and a few sheets of die cut decoupage. I've used three of the papers and one decoupage sheet here. Unfortunately the die cutting on the decoupage wasn't very accurate, leaving white borders around the images. Trimming off the white with scissors would have been very fiddly and left the layers too small for the base image, so instead I made a feature of all the white bits by using white for all the matting. We crafters can usually find a creative solution to every problem and make every piece of stash into a usable one!
