Have a cool yule


I'm late, I'm late ... for Margaret's snowman challenge for the Christmas card club. I used snow white leather embossed card torn for the snow drifts and inked my favourite Stampotique snowman stamp by Jo Capper Sandon, coloured lightly with alcohol pens. I added some stickles diamond below the torn edges of the drifts. The snowflakes were cut with my woodware snowflake punch ... the shame is that the card was really too thick to punch, so I put it on the floor and stood on it ... this was successful for four snowflakes before the poor punch keeled over and died ... so now I need a new one. Gems added to the snowflakes and buttons for the snowman.

This is also for Moxie fab world Tuesday trigger: shimmer and shine, where this photo is given (it's just a pity that my card doesn't look as sparkly here as it does IRL):


As usual, difficult to get a photo of white on white, but you get the drift (snow drift, maybe - lol!):


This is also for:

Oldie but a goodie: let it snow (the stamp is well over six months old)
