Frosty the snowman ...

It's a while since I made a Christmas card featuring a snowman, but that's what Sue J asked us to make for today's Christmas Card Club challenge. So I thought it was about time I used one of my favourite Stampotique stamps by Jo Capper-Sandon, colouring just a bit with spectrum noirs. I stamped this on to an offcut piece of hammered white card to give a bit of texture. The scalloped circles were cut with nesties. The backgrounds were made with my eBosser with the lovely Embossaliious 'star of wonder 8 x 8 embossing folder. The pieces used were all snippets left from earlier makes, so I'm into the playground for Pixie's crafty snippets week 91.

As ever, with mirror card it was difficult to get a photo without too much reflection. You can't really see, but the circular Craftwork cards sentiment says 'with love at Christmas', mounted on to a piece of glittered white ribbon from Hobbycraft.

I've based the card on the sketch given for Christmas card challenges week 43:
