Cosy Snowman

Hi guys

I'm back today to share my final card this side of Christmas, having now tidied away my crafty mess for the second time!

This is the card I made for my chap and I'm really pleased with how this one turned out :)

I stamped the snowman image and coloured him in using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers before die cutting using a circle die.  I then used a smaller die from the same set of nested dies and stamped the first sentiment.  I then stamped a piece of background cardstock with a cluster of snowflakes stamp and the second sentiment.  I popped both die cuts up on 3D foam before tying some twine around the whole panel and attaching a heart button.  The whole panel was then adhered to the card base.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Penny Black - Sweet Snowman; Marion Emberson Designs - Sparkling Christmas; Personal Impressions - To My... (Sue Dix)
  • Ink: Impress - Jet Black; Versafine - Onyx Black; Versa Color - Polar Blue
  • Coloured with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers
  • Dies: Xcut - Nested Circles
  • Twine: Doodlebug - Brights Selection
  • Button: Craftime Additions - Country Love

Challenge entries:
A Gem of a Challenge - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz Challenges - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - Christmas
Paper Pretties - Let It Snow
Passion for Promarkers - Include a Sentiment
Sketch Saturday - Anything Goes - Any Sketch: I chose #272

So now I take this opportunity of wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and very best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year - but hopefully I'll be back with more to share before 2014 makes an appearance!

Bye for now...I'm off to open the Baileys! :)
