Holly Jolly Christmas

Good Sunday morning all!  How about this cheeky little chappie for today's offering!  I started by cutting two of the Frosty Snowflake Border die in aqua card.  I attached them to the top and bottom edge of a piece of coconut white card with a strip of sticky adhesive sheet.  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz to add a sparkle.  Next I cut a white card using the Double Stitched Rectangles and added a black mat to it by cutting the next size up in the Double Stitched rectangles Set B.  I used the Stitched Hills and Clouds die to cut a base out of white.  I used the Build A Snowman die set to create the cute snowman in his top hat and added a lamp post next to him.  I cut the sentiment in both aqua card and black card and used it as a shadow then added the sentiment next to the snowman.  I added a few lines of clear glue and sprinkled Iced Snow on the base for a frosty look.  The card was completed with white, aqua and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  8 3/4" in size.
All for now Sue x

Morning Sue,
Sorry I haven't commented since Wednesday but arrived home to find that I'd left my charger in S.A. so had to buy another. Talk about Black Friday weekend.
However, today's card is such a cutie, I just love your cheeky little snowman, he reminds me of my little nephew. Must buy some of that sparkly glitter kiss to go with my red, now.
Why, when I think that I have more than enough Christmas dies, you prove me wrong.
Enjoy your day. Hugs xx Pauline (no longer in SA)

Yesterday was snowman building day here. I made several of these cute cards, a bit simpler than today's sample. This is a fun die set as many have already pointed out...loads of accessories for our chilly fellows. I even added the name of my nephew to a sign (included). I enjoyed my day inside (nasty out) making these cards.
Have a good evening,

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
What a jolly snowman he is! I made the decision to have the gingerbread man (which I also love with the accessories and fabulous border) but as usual, you have me thinking I should have this cute little fellow too, the problem is, with your dies, We Want Them All !!!

Had a lovely day today, crafting with a good friend, your stained glass dies took centre stage,


Hugs

Good morning again Sue.
I didn't get this posting until today and have already commented on today's offering.
Funnily enough I have the dies for this card and also for yesterdays. I don't have the lamp die but I think I have the stamp so thank you again.
Hugs.
