With More Snow...

comes more Christmas cards!  I can't beleive this weather....one day it is spring, the next winter again.  It is cold today, but supposed to warm up to 9 C by the middle of the week!

The snow was inspiring however, for some more Christmas cards!  At the rate I am working, I should have all the christmas cards I'll need by the summer!

I absolutely adore this snowman!  He is created by Heather Ellis, and can be found on her Esty store!  I found this Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses left in my stash, and thought it would be perfect for this card.  I printed Mr Snowman out onto SU Whisper White cardstock, and coloured him in with my copics.

The layout for this card is from Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch #106.  I also embossed the white panel and used embellishments on the card, which was the challenge this week over at the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog.  And, I used my favourite in the whole world Kraft cardstock, so this will work for Jeanie's That's Krafty Thursday Challenge #48.  I know it's the third card in a row...but I love Kraft!  I promise, tomorrow's card will have NO KRAFT on it!

To finish off the card, I added some clear glaze to the heart for some shine, and used my nestabilities Snowflake, and my MFT Die-namics to add some embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by!
