Winter Frost.

I had meant to post this yesterday evening but I couldn't get a decent photo showing up the Xcut  jigsaw die I had used and as that was the whole point of making the card I had to wait till today and try again. You can just about see that I used the die cut on an old christmas card front and then layered onto white card which I then used 3D  pads on to adhere to the navy blue card base.  The sentiment was from my stash which  I also layered on to white card and then with 3D pads onto a remaining piece of the card front. (Waste not want not!).  I even decorated the inside of the card with the remaining strip of old card. 


Here is a close up of the finished card showing the die cut pieces that I reassembled and stuck  on  a piece of white paper  first before adhering to the white card stock. (Just as well I did as easier said than done. Even with only nine pieces I nearly stuck them in the wrong order.)
