MTTC #499 Theme is Snowman DT inspiration card for 13 January 2023

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart's so happy to use some of my January TGSB kit and an older patterned paper from The Paper Studio. It was given to me for Christmas from my sister probably 4 years ago. The showcased card on today's post is for the #499 Theme of Snowman/Snowmen for My Time To Craft challenge blog!

MTTC's #499 runs from January 13-26, 2023. Bragging rights are possible. Each participant can enter up to 3 new themed projects. And these do NOT have to be Christmas cards. They can be Winter Season Wishes, snowy Valentine themed cards, January birthday cards, or maybe February birthday cards depending on where you live. Where I live, we still get snow in March and even sometimes into April--even ice! Be creative!

Merry Snowmen Surrounded by Gray Skies Christmas card=

[theme #499 elements= the snowmen print paper from The Paper Studio and a blue glitter foam snowman sticker]

Some more design and vendor notes are:
1. pinecone cardstock scrap = Fancy Pants Designs
2. gray and white buffalo plaid cardstock scrap + the light blue left-folded 5"x7" card base= The Paper Studio
3. the mid-gray with white dots cardstock panel = My Mind's Eye
4. silver and gold foil dazzles/stickers; also the word "merry"; "Christmas" is on the inside = Paper Wishes website
5. thick foam tape was adhered under the snowmen's panel to give it some definition against the grays and light blues
**Items #1-4 were part of my January Great Stash Bash Kit! See Lisa and Lori's links for details.

  4. What a fun card! Love the grey tones on the papers in the background. Those snowmen are so cute! Thanks for joining in the Christmas Craft Creations challenge with your snippets!

  5. What a wonderful way to use old paper. I love how it turned out! It almost looks like it came from 1 predesigned paper pack. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing and playing along with ABC Christmas Challenge ~ Wendy

    1. Appreciate the feedback, Wendy! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. A great, fun card - love the layers.
