Winter Scene

Good Morning Folks,

I hope this finds you well.

I didn't have too much time for crafting yesterday so this is one I made several days ago and didn't get posted.
This is how it was made:

- the base is a 6" square Kraft card

- the topper was made from two cards recycled from last Christmas. I chopped up the one used for the background into three strips then adhered the two cream/gold decorated pieces to the front of the card. Next, to hide the join the gold embossed strip, originally a vertical edge to the card, was placed horizontally across the front.

- the second card had a very pretty winter scene which I cut out using a die from X-cut's Nesting Circles set. A snippet of gold card was die-cut to form the mat for the winter scene. Once they were glued together the inner circle was edged with Platinum Stickles. 

And that is it - as easy and as simple as that.

I'm submitting it to this week's challenge over at 

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for October: the challenge is always 'Always anything goes'

and also Pixie's Snippets Playground - where every snippet counts :)

Wishing you a wonderful day. I'm off to catch up on a bit of painting - with watercolours :)
