It’s so hard to believe it, but we are just two days away from the big day, and time is running short. Although I didn’t manage to share all my “scrappy” cards from January’s retreat, I came pretty close… and I’m ending the series here today with card #10. Huge thanks to all of you for following along on my journey and attempt to use up some old holiday collections and paper scraps.
Today’s card is made almost solely from Echo Park’s I Love Christmas collection, and features a woodland scene built mostly from leftover stickers. I used dotty patterned paper to mimic the look of a gentle snowfall in the background, and cut a rounded curve along a scrap of white cardstock to give the tree some snowy ground to stand on. Used another piece of a border sticker with v-notches cut into the ends as a sentiment banner across the center of the scene. The only item from the Dear Santa collection, and single tiny gold star, dresses up the top of the tree.
The red border across the bottom of the card is actually part of the bar code strip at the bottom of the green patterned paper, and since there was no printing on this section, I thought it added another bit of color and detail to the card. Then white cardstock and red enamel dots finish this design.
Phew, Lots of cards from my scrap pile. The never-ending scrap pile. I do love a good challenge, though, and my annual January retreat is rolling around soon…. so perhaps the odyssey to use up these two particular collections doesn’t end here….
