Well you can say I'm a bit behind, since I figured I would make one Christmas card a month, and I never started until this past week! I need to get the ball rolling!
The image I'm using is an older Snowman image from Plum Purdy. She doesn't make stamps anymore - at least not that I could find. I've had this for several years. She is just so darn cute! What do you think?
I coloured the image using prisma colour pencils and blended with gamsol. I cut her out using MFT - cross stitch rectangle die. I then layered this onto spellbinders beaded square die cut. Then this where I ran into a road block. Pulling papers to go with her - geesh - too many papers is what I think - too many choices. So after a few nights of contemplating what to use, I laid out some paper samples and had Bill decide. He liked this combo the best. I must say he helps me a lot when I get stuck like this.
Papers are from Kaisercraft - Christmas carol (striped paper) and the bottom piece is from - you know what I don't even know. I cleaned up my work table after and I don't even see scraps from the bottom piece so I have no idea. I thought it was from the same Kaisercraft pack but I don't think it is.
To finish off, I added some seam binding ribbon, a snowflake cut from Poppy Stamps - Ava snowflake die, white flock for her tassel on her hat, lots of glitter - Tim Holtz distress glitter - clear rock candy - love this stuff, and a wooden snowflake from Studio Calico.
So there you have it, my first 2017 Christmas card done! Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day!
