Snowman Holiday Magic

Hello, everyone, I hope you are having a good day today.  A warm welcome to my newest followers.  Today I've made another Christmas card, and I seem to have a broken record because I am using the same sketch again LOL.

This cute little snowman image is from Gerda Steiner Designs and I just discovered Gerda's creations.  She has a freebie challenge too so I just couldn't resist.  I coloured the snowman with my Prismacolor pencils and added Stickles.  I probably should have waited for the Stickles to dry before I took the photo, oh well.  I embossed the background with Cuttlebug Snowflake.  The sentiment is a wood-mount from Plaid and I stamped it with Ancient Page Turquoise.  The washi tape is from Downtown Tape and Elmer's.  The ribbon is from May Arts and Offray.  The little snowman charm was in my stash.  I used my new favourite sketch from  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday:

Ingrid Mason said...

Oh Kitty, what a very beautiful CAS card ....embossing your background with snowflakes is just perfect for your Snowman image. The blue and white is so fresh and chilly and I love the very spring like shades of green in your tape and ribbon as they make me feel that although winter is looming the season isn't really all that long (spring is my favourite season btw) Is that a touch of very pretty lace I spy behind your image? Another wonderful card that I've thoroughly enjoyed. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )

Unknown said...

Such a beautiful card! I love how awesome you colored the hat! Great job as always!

Beccy said...

Fabulous card KT, I love that cute snowman! I love how you've added the glitter for snow too, the little bit of sparkle is wonderful. The snowman charm and big green bow are also wonderful and add a nice finishing touch. Well done.

VERY nice indeed! I love the CAS look to the card - you have inspired me to make more of my Christmas cards CAS! The embossed base card adds the texture and detail that make it seem like there is so much more to it!

What a delightful little card! It is both classy and whimsical and I love how you added so much texture and dimension with the ribbon and snowflake-embossed background. Once again, I bow to your coloring skills and loved the combo of Prismacolors with Stickles! Great idea to cut the Washi with a fishtail edge, too. This card made me smile and I'm so glad that you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
