Ellephantastic Sketchy Snowman

In an effort to make a dent in my Christmas card list I am making a concerted effort to use images that I have had coloured in for a while and need to get cracking as I haven’t made anywhere near as many as I need to.

This little snowman is a digi by Ellephantastic and I have to admit it has been coloured in since early this year when I had all these great plans about making my chrissie cards all through the year……. I used one of my new Nestabilities dies from the NEC last week but slightly misjudged how big the image was so it’s been trimmed a bit too close for my liking L

I used a base card from a Craftwork Cards goodie bag with the snowflake paper from the pack. I also used my new Martha Stewart trellis punch on a scrap of iridescent card. I finished off with some peel off stickers for the sentiment. This card is a right mix of old and new, peel offs are years old, digi is about 10 months old and then the rest of it is all brand spanking new.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – 4” Square
Paper – Craftwork Cards
Embellishments – Peel off stickers
Tools – Nestabilities die, Martha Stewart Punch, Promarkers
Techniques – Die cutting & punching

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-

Mandy this is adorable! I love the color. I have the same problem with my digital images and my Nestabilities.LOL Sometimes I get the image too big for a card when I am not thinking. Which happens more than I would like to admit. LOL
Love your card!
