I have made my 1st Christmas card of 2017.
Your probably thinking er! A Christmas card in March, but I need to get organised early! Although I don't know how long it will last 😁

I used Me and My Snowman from Magnolia Aspen Holidays 2016 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock and cut around using an oval template.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor & Polychromos pencils.
I have matted the finished image onto a Spellbinders floral oval.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly#2 and Maja Design 'A Gift For You' underneath the Christmas tree 12 x 12 sheet.
Other dies used are; Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration and Ivy circle.
Sizzix 'on the edge' snow flurries and holiday greens. Joy Crafts Ice crystal circle and Billes flourishes and build a snowman from Magnolia Doohickey club vol 12.
I inked the die cuts with Tim Holtz Vintage photo distress ink.

A close look at the floral arrangements and the snowman.
I coated the arrangements with Snow - Tex.
The lantern is Wycinanka.
I coated the snowman with glamour dust and adhered a piece of black card behind his head so that his mouth and eyes were visible.
I coloured his nose and arms with Polychromos pencils and added 3D gloss to his nose.

A close look at Tilda with her snowman.
I used a snowflake stamp to stamp around the outside of the image and sprinkled shabby white embossing enamel around the inside.
I adhered a length of 2mm white pearl string around the outside of the image and created the snow balls with Snow - Tex.
I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the snowman and used 3D gloss on his nose.
On the ground I used glamour dust.
I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a white gelly roll pen.

Inside the card is decorated with design papers and the smallest of a GoKreate large frame frilly #2 die cut.

I hope you like my card?
