Merry Christmas Steve

This is my final Christmas card for this year and as usual Steve's card is the last one I make!  I'm entering Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'Show me a Snowman', The Male Room 'Christmas/Winter Wishes/December Celebrations' challenge, the Holly & Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes and Crafty Friends 'Friends and Family' challenge.

Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Stamp: Bugaboo 'Snowman Couple' digi
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Red mirri, white silk
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Krafty Christmas'
Other: Diamond Stickles, Glossy Accents, Stampendous Fun Flock, Wink of Stella, Computer generated sentiment 'Tempus Sans ITC' font

I trimmed the snowflake paper, layered it onto red mirri and attached it to the card front.  I resized the digi and added the sentiment below before printing it onto white card and colouring it with Promarkers.  The image was then trimmed, layered onto red mirri and attached to the card front.  I added funflock to the hat, a Wink of Stella to the buttons and Diamond Stickles to the snow.  To finish I added Glossy Accents to the heart.

This is the last post on my blog this year as we're going to Cirencester in Cali on Saturday for the Christmas holiday.  I wish everyone has a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

What an adorable Snowie couple, and I like that you've used the warmth of the reds and tans (I always think blues, greens & purples. This will give me ideas!) They look sweet and cozy, and the background looks great with the colors of the focal image. Merry Christmas and my best wishes for a wonderful 2018. TFS & Hugs
