Christmas easel card

 I've been having a good rummage through the snippets box and the Christmas snippets box. In my main snippets box, I keep a section for "basics" - black, white, kraft, cream, silver and gold - where i know that even the tiniest scrap can be used. However those tiny scraps build up - and this card has shifted an awful lot of the scraps of kraft. 

I added a sheet of tartan paper from a pullout collection that was in a craft mag a few years ago, and added lots of snippets that were part of the same collection - even the snow scene tag is a snippet. These are the very last scraps of the papers - but I saved a download of the designs and I'm sure I will revisit them - especially that pretty snowflake paper. 

In the spirit of using things up, the felt snowflake border is the very last scrap from a huge spool of it I've ben using for years,  and the crystal "fruit  pastilles" are the last three from a much loved sheet. I'll have to try and source some more of those! 

I am sharing this with 

Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 416

and the challenge which this month is acting as a "sister" challenge, with Miss Di as guest designer, 

Christmas Kickstart - Christmas Snippets

LOVING this Christmas easel card using up your snippets and oddments for embellishments.

Got a batch of hot chocolate brewing in the Playground Treehouse and there's a mug with your name on it!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Love the colour scheme, Kraft is a favourite of mine but paired with the blue it’s stunning. I love to use things up but then get sad because I don’t have it anymore, hugs, amanda x

Oh wow Jane, what a fabulous snippets card! Must have taken ages to make. It's just perfect with the kraft and blue together.

So happy to see you doubling-up at Snippets and CKC, Jane! Your card is gorgeous and I love that you used kraft as your base as it looks great with all the blue DPs. Thanks for playing at Christmas Kickstart with Di and me, Jo x
