All of my images were stamped and fussy cut. This tedious task seems to calm me somehow. I also absolutely hate to throw out scraps! The snow base is made with scraps, the scarves on the tower of snowmen is pieced with scraps and the dotted background is assembled with leftover pieces of a 12x12 sheet of double sided paper.
I'm entering my card into a challenge over at http://korttikarkuri.blogspot.ca/ Christmas Cards out of Scraps/Old Stash, Addicted to Stamps and More, ,Anything Goes Challenge and Splitcoast Stampers Christmas Card Challenge using scraps, CCC13. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2453170?cat=500&ppuser=354073
