Peace On Earth Challenge #44

We are at challenge #44 at Peace On Earth
and have a mood board for inspiration but you can create anything
as long as it is Christmas themed! 

I let the Santa in the upper left corner inspire me as well as all the 
little animals in the bottom right corner knowing I had this 
Cottage Cutz die that I had never used before!
I let that die intimidate me with all the small pieces which is crazy
as this was a very easy die set to put together, geez why didn't I use it sooner?  All my pieces were cut from 'snippets' of white card stock
then colored with my copics making it even easier to put together!
(I keep all my card leftovers in bags by color)

Unfortunately the die has since been discontinued from their store!

Other then adding some paper behind the image I pretty
much left it alone, the sentiment will go inside the card!
This was a fun piece to put together and I definitely will be making more 
cards with this cute die!!

Take a peek at Peace On Earth and join in with us,
jus think you will be that much ahead on cards when the holiday season
rolls around again, which seems to be here before we know it!

Entering the following challenges:
Snippets Playground .... Christmas with Snippets
52 Christmas Card Throwdown .... Pets
Double Trouble .... Santa's Hat

Jingles Belles .... Santa's Hat
Send A Smile For Kids .... Christmas In July

Great card Diane - and I do feel your fear at launching into using what is a die set with many pieces. But, WHAT a result! Lovely! AND, perfect way to use up snippets of course.

OMGosh, that's a cute die, and all those little critters came with it? LOVE it! I know that feeling of intimidation. I believe I'm getting better about it, but I still have some Cottage Cutz Christmas dies I haven't used yet, plus non-Christmas, plus more and more and more of everything, sigh. I'm so glad you finally played with it because your card is absolutely delightful!

Carol L said...

Santa's little helpers are too cute and I just love all those snow-covered trees! Santa looks quite happy on this fun card!
