Little Snowman

Another of my Christmas cards from my last minute cramming session. Will someone please remind me that next year I need to be more pro-active and make them more consistently throughout the year…. Maybe I need to be on a Christmas challenge DT too J

I ADORE snowmen and this cute smiley one is from Birdie Brown and is called Little Snowman. He is coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers and I added some glossy accents to his coal eyes and mouth. A smattering of Stickles glitter glue has been added to his pom pom and scarf trim. He is matted onto a scrap of blue card from my oddments box and I added some Papermania star gems around the main image.

I am rather proud of this card as it is all from scraps J The paper is the last of a sheet of Imaginisce iridescent paper which has a lovely sheen to it. There is even an offcut of blue card that had been embossed with a Cutlebug folder and I used a silver waxy rub-on to highlight the pattern. To finish I added a sentiment from my stash with 2 more of the little gems.

Well with all the wet weather and flooding we are having in the UK there is absolutely no chance of us building a snowman, however on the other side of the Atlantic I see there are massive snowstorms so I do hope my American pals stay safe!
Materials Used in this card are as follows:-

Card Size – A6
Image – Little Snowman by Birdie Brown
Sentiment – from stash
Paper – Imaginisce
Embellishments – Gold wax, star gems by Papermania, Glossy Accents, Stickles glitter glue
Tools – 3d foam, Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Embossing Folder
Techniques – Embossing

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

I love this card Mandy. So cute. I wanted to come over and say thanks for popping by. You deserved a shout out in the Sunday Spotlight for what you had to say. I agree with you regarding Vicky. That woman is amazing and I don't know how she does it all. She deserves all the credit she gets! I'm also really happy to hear that you donated to Jessica for Eddie's fund. She has been generous to us and her cause is a worthy one. I hope you had a marvelous Christmas and I hope to see more of you in the new year.

Best wishes for 2013!
