Second time around at CD Sunday


I have a box of odds and ends that one day I will use of a card. I also have some old Christmas cards, not too many but just ones I really think I could use again. When I saw the challenge at CD Sunday was for second time around I decided to actually do something with one of the cards I had been saving!

I used this cdrom and printed the nordic backing paper. 
I've had this watercolour panel die for a while now and I decided it could also look like snow, so I used it over the paper I had printed out. A few of the images from the old card were added and some fake glittery snow. I also used the backing paper to cut out the sentiment.

Whilst I was in the swing of it I made another card, this time the backing paper is in full force and I just added some mirri card.


There are still some images and paper left over but I ran out of steam!

Great card Linby. Are the mittens, reindeer and tree 3D or are they photos? Which ever they are I really like them! Thanks for joining in with this theme.
