An elf-y Christmas

My Christmas Snippets box is threatening to explode - I just can't throw away a scrap of Christmas paper, an image I've stamped but not used or a sentiment I've cut out and then changed my mind about! So I had a bit of a blitz that resulted in this card, which used nothing new at all apart from a piece of ribbon.

I put the two papers together because neither was big enough to cover the card, but I reckon that torn edge makes it look like a planned arrangement. The elf was already stamped and I used Promarkers and a gel pen to colour her to match all the other bits and bobs. The die cut snowflake  was one I had rejected for a project because I  have never, EVER managed to extract a die cut from that die totally intact - however using it behind the topper has hidden the join where I stuck it back together. The sentiment and candi are leftovers from an old Craftwork Cards goody bag.

Naturally I am taking this over to the Snippets Playground   and because of that little elf I am also sharing at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown

Looks great to me, Jane. I've got a stash of torn penguin paper, so may just follow your lead and go for the arty, torn look! Love that snowflake - where's it from?

Those papers look as if they were meant to be together Jane - perhaps because of that arty torn edge! Love your rant about the snowflake die - not just me then!

Great card Jane! I love the papers together and the torn edge is so right. Have you tried using waxed paper between the die and the white card? I've never had a die refuse to budge when using that - mind you, peeling the waxed paper off the die cut is a different matter :)
