The First Christmas Card of the Year!

Here we are in July and here I am making my first Christmas card of the year. I know I usually start early but not this early! This exception is for the CES challenge #45 - Christmas challenge

This is one of my all time favourite Snowman stamps. I have had it for about 4 years and out he comes every year. This was stamped on Navy card and embossed with white powder. This, in turn, was layered onto hand marbled card,  pale blue card and finally onto the A5 navy coloured blank.

The snowflakes were created from 3 individual snow flake layers, cut and embossed using Spellbinders Shapeabilities, layered with Pinflair gel.

The snowflake ribbon was pushed through a slot cut in the spine of the card blank and tied in a bow. A plaque was cut with an other Shapeability and the message placed on the front with sticky foam pads. This was mounted on the ribbon with Pinflair.


  1. Ahhh, Christmas, Argh!
    I can see why you like the stamp though, he's just so jolly!
