Blue Christmas

For this card I've used a fancy fold card and components from the Kanban 'all wrapped up' kit. The picture of the snowman is glittered in places and is overlaid with the spotted vellum held in place with the four brads.

I'm not really happy with it because I should have cut the snowman picture etc to better fit the upright of the card blank - I'll know better next time!



This is for:

Holly jolly Christmas: bingo - I chose: glitter, free, blue (also used brads)

Winter wonderland: monochromatic
52 Christmas card throwdown: anything goes
