Snowman- Warm Thoughts

Good afternoon, I think think I've just about made all my Christmas cards for this year- although I'll still need to knock up a few tags for presents and make some post-Christmas thank you cards. So today's card is probably one of the last Christmas cards I'll be sharing.



It's a one layer card- I started by putting the stitches along the bottom using a Papersmooches stitches die. Then I added the Snowman from the Papersmooches Frezzy Friends stamp set. 



Next I masked off the snowdrift and the snowman and then added the falling snow to the background by using a large MFT dotty background stamp and silver Brilliance ink. 


Finally, I added colour to the snowman using watercolours and then loads of Wink of Stella to give a frosty look. 


Thanks for stopping by today, 

Rebecca x x


Challenge Inspiration:
I pulled together a few challenges to get inspired to make this card, I've sone with the theme from Less is more (one layer, snow), the photo inspiration from Papersmooches Sparks challenge (the layered pebbles look like the snowman's body piled up) and finally all the silver is from the Cue word at CASology (which is silver).

  5. this is so clever Rebecca ... in the thumbnail image it looks like more than 1 layer but it's fabulous.
    Great positioning of the stitched die and love the cute image and sentiment.
    Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
