Simply Christmas #4

Another day closer to Christmas and it seems to be creeping up on us, it will be here before you know it.  I hope this latest little series is giving you a bit of inspiration to get some Christmas crafting done.

This card was made using a digi stamp from SKDigis, called Snowman 2.  I printed it off a couple of times and then coloured the pieces with pencils and gamsol.

I decided to build the snowman in a couple of layers to make her a little more 3D.


The card base is 6.5" by 5".  The backing paper is from my old stash from the UK.

A little bit of orange/peach ribbon to pick up on the colour of the nose and flowers.


Also, some of that lovely glittery wool and some bling to finish off the flowers.

I didn't put a sentiment on this one, as I felt the backing paper did that for me.

A very quick and simple card to share with you.

This card is being entered in the following challenges.

SK Digis - Challenge #2: Black and White +1 (closes 23 Sept)

Just Keep on Creating - Christmas is Around the Corner (closes 30 Nov)

Paper Pretties Challenge PPMC57 - Use Ribbon (closes 23 Sept)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting
