Have an ice Christmas

I used a scalloped circle card blank and half of another to create this easel card, threading twine through a button to act as a stopper and then wrapping the twine around the card a few times. I inked the Stamps Happen polar bear Santa stamp with memento tuxedo black and coloured his hat and scarf with copics. The image was then cut with a Nellie Snellen die and mounted on to a nestie die cut scalloped circle using a piece of offcut paper. The piece of silver snowflake ribbon was wrapped around beneath the die cuts and a bow added. The snowflakes on the base were punched out of bits of the offcut paper. The sentiment was created on my dymo letratag.
