This month's Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge is 'Anything Christmas / Holiday' and we are sponsored by Bugaboo.

I'm entering this card into the Merry Monday 'Masculine Christmas' challenge, A Gem of a Challenge 'Snowman/women' Allsorts 'Anything Christmas' and Christmas with the Cuties 'Anything Cute and Christmassy Goes' challenge.


Card blank:  7" x 7" white silk

Die:  Cheery Lynn Designs 'Smowflake Set 2'
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Bronze pearl, white silk
Paper: Lili of the Valley ''Twas the Night'
Other: Crystal Stickles, Wink of Stella, Maroon nailhead

I trimmed the strip paper, layered it onto bronze card and attached it to the card front.  I resized the digi stamp and printed it onto white silk card.  This was coloured with Promarkers to match the backing paper.  The image was trimmed to the width of the stripe paper, layered onto bronze card and attached across the centre.  I die cut a snowflake from bronze card, attached it to the top corner of the card and added a maroon nailhead to the centre.  I added a Wink of Stella to the hat bands and Crysal Stickles to the snow.

Snippets: Red pearlescent card, Wild Rose Studio 'Painted Poinsettias' paper

The paper was a part-used sheet from the pad, so I trimmed it to a square, layered it onto red pearlescent card and attached it to the card blank.  I die cut the sentiment and attached it to the upper corner.  A few sequins were then added around the sentiment.
