Cute Card Thursday Challenge - The Blues

Some months ago I was invited to be a Guest Designer on the Cute Card Thursday DT.  I was very honoured to be asked to join the team for the month of December and I do hope that you'll all enjoy my GDT projects over the next few weeks.

This week's challenge theme is 'The Blues'.  As I'm still in full Christmas card production mode, I have used the theme to create one more to add to my stock. 

This cute snowman stamp is from Sugar Nellie and I have had him in my stash for a few years, he comes out to play every year as I love him so. 

I coloured him with a combination of Promarkers and Copic pens and added touches of Spica Glitter pen, Glossy Accents and Stardust Stickles, before cutting him out using a set of deckle edge rectangle nesties.  The background papers are from a pack which I bought last winter from my local Art Shop and didn't use for last year's Christmas cards.  The lacy doillies behind the image were cut using a Marianne's Designs die and I added more of the Stickles around the edges.  For the trellis edging I used a deep edge Martha Stewart border punch and the large snowflake and small doillie were cut with other MS punches.  The small flower was cut with a Punch & Emboss set by Nellie Snellen, the blue gem from my stash and the sentiment is from a small set of clear stamps I've had for ages.  I cut the sentiment out using a small circle nestie and the aqua layer underneath with a petite scallop nestie only very slightly larger, so that it just peeks out from behind.

I hope you've enjoyed sharing my first GDT creation and that you'll submit an entry for this week's CCT challenge.  I'll have another project to share with you next thursday, so hope to see you again then - if not before!.
