Santa Claus is Coming to Town

I love this Christmas scene die - it's also perfect for making quick snippets cards.

I die cut the scene from white hammer card before layering it onto a snippet of dark blue snowflake paper and trimming around the edge.  This was layered onto dark blue mirri card and attached to the centre of the card blank.  I used a couple of teeny snippets of gold pearlescent card to die cut the moon (the snippets were so small I had to cut it in two pieces!) and these were inlaid into the card.

To make this card I used:
     5.5" x 4.25" white hammer card blank
     Cottage Cutz 'Christmas Eve Night' die
     Snippets of white hammer, dark blue mirri and gold pearlescent card, dark blue snowflake paper

I am entering the following challenges:
     Christmas Card Throwdown - Forest & Deer
     CAS Christmas - Christmas Song (I've chosen 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town')
     Christmas Crafts All Year Round - Anything Christmas/Winter Holiday Goes
     Christmas Kickstart Challenge - Winter Wonderland (Create a Scene)
     Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - Anything Goes + Optional: Festive Animals
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 376

What a delightful card Kath - the scene is just so perfect. I did smile that you had to cut the moon in two parts - that truly IS making the most of your snippets :)
