Christmas Card Club "Snowmen"

Good morning all.

Another fortnight has passed and it's time once again for our little Christmas Card Club to show what we've been up to. The theme this time was chosen by Lorraine and she asked to see "Snowmen".


The Penny Black tree was a recent magazine freebie and I've inked it in two shades of Memento green ink and stamped three times to create my background. The snowmen stamp is from Joanna Sheen which I've coloured with promarkers, added some stickles for sparkle and fussy cut before attaching with foam pads. The snowy foreground was created using a snippet of white card and an edge die from Clearly Besotted. The sentiment stamp also came from Clearly Besotted.

Another all finished inside.


Challenges entered:
I Love Promarkers - 3 of a kind
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas goes
CHNC - sparkle
Brown Sugar - anything goes
Crafty Catz - anything goes
QKR Stampede - 3 of something
Stempelsonnen Challenge - it's winter

  1. Carol this is such a lovely scene. By cutting the snowmen out and mounting on foam pads has given it such dimension. Those trees are fabulous too. Michelle x

  18. Carol these are darling snowmen! Am loving that background scene, and especially those gorgeous PB trees. Can't believe you got those as a magazine freebie. I was just looking at that stamp recently. Good deal at getting it free. It surely is pretty with your dimensional & cute snow fellas. TFS & Hugs
