Cozy Christmas

Hello!  Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe I've got another post already?  That's two so far this week!  I am happy to be finding a little time to finish up card projects on my desk!  Definitely not an easy feat these days!  Anyway, I'm here with a quick post to share another Christmas card I made to add to my stash.  It is for a bunch of challenges that all had a similar theme - snow or snowmen.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Red Hot and the patterned papers are from the Recollections Bright Christmas 6x6 pad.  My cute image is Snowman Scene from QKR Stampede.  I won it when they were sponsoring a blog hop I participated in recently.  I printed it on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added Liquid Pearls to the falling snow, Crystal Snow to the pom pom and brim of his hat, Red and Aqua Stickles to the ornaments on the tree and Gun Metal Stickles to his buttons.  The sentiment is from Bird's Cards. It was a freebie I picked up last year.  I added red gingham ribbon from my stash, some aqua and white fabric trim (Webster's Pages) and a few snowflakes punched from glitter paper to finish my card.

Here is a close-up of the snowman scene:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back early tomorrow with my Little Miss Muffet DT card.
