We have a new challenge over at Holly Jolly as Christmas will be here before we know it and we are getting ahead of created our Christmas cards.


Our theme is Snowman and we have some great sponsors -


I have used an image called Snow Dad and it is from  sponsor.  The image has been coloured with Copic markers.


I have added a snowflake border using the Martha Stewart Winter Snow around the page punch. With some Rhinestones on some of the solid snowflakes.

  The colours used are not traditional but I love the cool feel of the finished card.


Here is my Snowman card:

The cardstock used is SU Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and Xpress It Blending Cardstock.


The dies used were from SU Ovals Collection, Memory Box Snowflake Sprig and Marianne Design Large Petra Oval #LR0240. The edges of the Marianne Design Oval have been daubered with some Crumb Cake ink on the embossing.


The sentiment is from a freebie set on a magazine DoCrafts Papermainia Folk Christmas and has been stamped in Soft Sky ink and punched out using the SU Ticket Punch.


Here is a close up of this cutie:

BG70, 75, 72, 000, 10, 0000
