Fun in the snow

Actually I should have called this card "Fun in the snippets box" because everything on it apart from the image and buttons has come from my Christmas Snippets box, and I had a lovely time rummaging through it and reminiscing about past Christmas makes that the papers were originally used for.

The cute teddy in the snow image was stamped using a stamp from a magazine covermount set  many years old. All the papers came from the snippets box, as did the border - this was the only bit left of a sheet so I can't recall what it originally came from  - and the sentiment, which was from a sheet printed out from a very old Polkadoodles CD. I bought that CD before I had learned how to properly incorporate CDs into my crafting, didn't get on with it because I didn't know what I was doing, and gave it away after printing out just one or two sheets of images and sentiments. The large glittery snowflake was cut with a Uniko die using a scrap from my general snippets box.

I coloured the image to go with the papers and then used a nesties die to cut it out to match the shape of the sentiment. While it was still in the die I very lightly sponged pale blue ink around the edges. The final embellishments are a few buttons from my collection.

I am sharing this with

That is one laboring teddy pulling his sled through the cute. Love that you were able to use so many snippets to create this cute card, with so much eye candy! Enjoyed seeing it in the Snippets Playground. TFS & Happy Easter.
