A spoonfull of sugar dt

Are you getting ahead with your Christmas cards yet? Well noiw would be a golden opportunity as we have a Christmas challenge for you this week on ASFOS.
For my card i decided to use this old snow man stamp that is locally made by Country Crafts, i colored him with my copics and then masked him so i could create the background, i sponged the background and then added little white dots so it would look like snow falling.  I used another of my NS dies to cut out the image.

I used a dotted satin ribbon strung across my card and tied it in a bow, added the blingy flourish down the side and then layered snow flakes to finish off the front.
After chatting to my two skype friends in America and being told that my cards are not finished unless i decorate the insides i have now put my head down to try and decorate the insides of my cards also.  So i carried through the snow flakes to the inside of my card and then also added the outer cut from when i cut my NS die for the inside. 


  1. I love the blue and red, different from the usual green & red! Nice to see the old stamps being used in a new way...inspiration from our recent challenge?! lol
    I'd just love to know how you got the sponged background so demo at the next funday please ;-)
