Using my Scraps on Rudolph Day

Yesterday was the 25th which means that it is Rudolph Day time from now to the end of the month. I thought I would kill two birds with one stone (so violent!) and make a Christmas card using scraps so I could also play along with the Use Your Stuff Challenge.
I wanted to try out this rather simplistic card design I saw recently when pursuing the web. It really spoke to me even though CAS isn't usually my thing. This is my version of it. I really like how it came out and I have visions of similar cards I can make--and not all Christmas. It really is a great way to use us your scraps even though with this small amount of them on your card you'll need to make to a thousand more to use up your scraps (or is that just me?).

The Fine Print: Dotted card background by Bazzill, designer paper by K&Co., circle punch by Marvy, and greeting and star shaped bling by A Muse Artstamps. True confession time--those aren't my scraps, well I guess they are now since they were in a stash of Christmas designer paper that my friend gave me, but I didn't create them.

I LOVE this clever design, CAS, yet so colorful - It's easy mailing, would be easy to mass replicate, and it's just quite unique! I think you've picked a perfect look for Rudy Day, and Snippets too. Did you jump over to the Snippets Playground? If not, I think this one deserves to enter. Like you observed, this design layout would work for many occasions, & colors. Also liked the way you've angled the sentiment too. TFS & Hugs

I like this simple design and the way you used your snippets! I recently spent a few hours punching square snippets for quilt cards, so it must be snippets week for crafters!

Love it Princess J - great sketch and a great take on it. Love that they weren't officially your scraps - well you didn't make them, but you did own them, so we can let you off.
