Winter Wonderland Xmas Card

Good evening all

Finally I manage to get around to inking up my newest snowman.  He is fabulous and yes another magnolia, but I needed another snowman to be able to use all my MSE snowman sentiments.  So here is my entry to the Winter Wonderland Challenge - which this week was a very time consuming sketch but then it is a DT call as well.

So here is my interpretation of the sketch using some lovely Fiskars textured paper that I got from the Hobby House before Xmas.  I really really did not want to cut it up, but then it would go to waste if I did not.

So the base dark blue glitter card with the Fiskars lovely snowflake paper on top.  I then used my snowflake embossing folder to create the centre strip.  I backed this with the same base card.  I cut out the little squares in white card stock and again backed these with the same base card.  I used the nesties to cut out the circles and the scalloped circles and embossed the large one with swiss dots to look like falling snow.  The Sentiment is my new Whiff Of Joy collection.  I punched out some little snowflakes to place on the white squares and placed tiny pearls in the centres and then added the contrast dark ribbon with the little bow.

Here is the snowman image coloured with the copics.
I cut the large held snowflake out with the cuttlebug and used smaller punched snowflakes to build the layers adding the little pearl to finish.  I have also used the clear Atyou glitter pen to make him glisten.
The bobble on his hat and the fringe has been raised for depth with liquid applique. I love this effect.

Well tomorrow I am off for a drive to Whitby, so I hope the sun shines nicely for the drive and I look forward to an interesting day.

Well sorry it is short but I am going to watch Australia's Master Chef, I am behind on a few programmes and need to catch up as it is getting down to the nitty gritty bits.

Take care all and thank you for all your recent lovely comments, which always make the working week go so much faster.

Hugs Kate x
