Best get on with some Christmas cards.....

This is the kind of Christmas card I'd make if I was new to cardmaking and didn't have a whole room bursting at the seams with stuff.  I only used five items - inkpad, white pencil, kraft cardstock and two stamps (snowman Paper Smooches and sentiment Penny Black). Perhaps I should downsize my stash!
I'd like to enter:
ABC Christmas  keep it simple
Winter Wonderland  snow
CAS Christmas snowman

It’s impressive what little is needed to make a card. Great CAs look! We could probably all do with less crafting stuff but it’s too fun...

Sarah said...

So funny. Nice result! We have more than enough stuff but there is so much that' s nice!

I really like how the snowman pops on the Kraft base, it has a real wintry feel. I just can't get motivated to do Christmas cards when its so sunny outside so great job with this one x

Really cute snowman and fabulous CAS design, Marina! I love how you colored him with your pencils against the Kraft background and your snowflakes are perfect! Thanks so much for playing along at CAS Christmas! Barb GD

Great card. I think white on Kraft is so effective.

Love Kraft cards and your snowman card is adorable. Great card with limiting supplies... maybe I need to downsize too. Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas Snowman challenge. x

If I could make CAS cards like this I'd definitely be tempted to just downsize and stick to this style. It's fab!
Thanks for joining us over at the ABC Christmas Challenge.
