…must have been some magic in that old silk hat…

I’ve got a card to share today featuring the cute Snowman image from Glimps.

The snowman is coloured with water colours and to make the card more Christmassy I did the birds up as cardinals, although frankly I need way more practice with my water colours!  The sentiment is from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and is one from the Holiday Style set.  It comes stacked so I carefully inked each of the three lines and used my MISTI to position each one to give me a one line sentiment instead.

Over at Winter Wonderland they are asking you to add snowflakes to your project.  I’ve already done a few cards up with snowflakes as the main image and wanted to use the Snowman so had to put my thinking cap on.  The embossing theme at Moving Along With the Times was just what I needed especially as a rummage through my embossing folder box turned up the Snowfall one from Sheena Douglas.  So I now have lots of snowflakes on my card, they just happen to be too small to look like the lovely individually shaped things they are up close!

I also wanted to play at Jingle Belles where the theme is ‘All Bundled-Up’ meaning lots of layers.  I’m loving my CAS at the moment so did my layers up in single colours rather than with my designer papers.  Including my card base and the fussy cut image I have five layers in total.
