Let it snow again

....that's the current challenge over at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge.
A quick rummage through my box of Christmas cards turned up these little cuties, already die cut and carefully peeled off the card they arrived on, ready to be upcycled.

I used:

- 5" x 7" white card stock

- red backing card - ack, I cut into a 12" x 12" sheet!!

- Kanban 'Twinkle Snow' card for the background

- the little bears and snowman 'topper', used sticky pads for dimension

- icicles  and snowflake from my little box of ready made die cut and glittered embellishments. The icicles were cut using Marianne Creatables LR036 die, the snowflake is also Marianne Creatables - LR0123. Both were die cut from white card with double sided adhesive film stuck on, then dunked into iridescent glitter

- strips of self-adhesive ribbon from a Fizzy Moon pack, with similar bears on :)

- a couple of diamante snowflakes

Am also entering this into Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra :)

I hate to say it with more than 10 months to go, I need to step up production if next Christmas isn't going to be a mad rush.

Hello Di,

Oh, you are so ahead of the game.... making Christmas cards and it's only February. You are smart about it though. There's no fun in a mad rush.

Love that adorable image. you are doing good with the UPcycling !
Love the way you made the background look sort of snowy!

Ouch...too bad you had to cut into a 1212 but sometimes it seem you never hae quite the exact shade or colour you does that happen!

I have 2 large, extra deep, filing cabinet drawers full of scrap cardstock and sometimes can never match a shade as there is just the one piece big enough for an image mat ad none left for the sentiment! teehe How does that happen!

Love your card.
