Snow

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
Stamp:   Bugaboo 'Christmas Words - Snow' digi
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.

This is definitely cute Kath but the blue striped dp makes it more masculine too, and love the added snowflake. x

Ah, look at how adorable he is, Kath, still smiling even though his whole body has melted away! Now there's an inspiration! (I'd be smiling, too, if I could have a large chunk of my body melt away!) Hugs, Darnell

This is really sweet Kath - I've seen the outline image before and have wondered what it would look like coloured and I must admit I just love it! I think I need this image myself now - lol!! Love the simplicity of your design with just the snowflake - it is absolutely great! Hugs to you Sue Pxxx (Teamie)
