A Snippet Card For Rudolph Day

Hello Everyone,

I've been so busy, with non-crafty stuff, I almost forgot ... how could I!!! But like our Pixie, Di, there's no way I can miss Rudolph Day over at ScrappyMo's. So here's my card for this month.

I've shamelessly copied an design seen on C&C TV which, apart from the card base, is composed entirely of die-cuts ... all cut from snippets of card too!

Materials used:
- white base card, 4¾" square
- snippets of cardstock - satin finish silver, red textured (Papermania), smooth green (PaperMill Direct)
- dies - Spellbinders Sapphire Basic Set A Circles, Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia (the two smallest flowers), Tattered Lace Mini Set Holly Leaves and Happy Christmas 
- amber and red gems

For once, I did a bit of forward planning and created a card that fitted in with another two of my favourite challenges:

Pixie's Snippet Playground - where the challenge is always to use snippets
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge, CHNC 230 - use something die-cut or punched
Oh, and a third I almost forgot:
CHNC challenge extra for May 2015 - anything goes as long as it's Christmas

I need to catch up on Christmas cards - been a bit lax so far and that means I could be stressing at the beginning of December which won't do at all!!!

Right, that's me done for this evening and it just leaves it for me to wish you a wonderful weekend.

Happy Crafting,
