Cute Snowman

Got another of my Christmas cards to share today, I made this one just before I got sick and realised I hadn't posted it up on here yet. 

The basecard is a 4 x 4 ivory pearl card and I stamped and heat embossed this sweet little snowie from a set by Inkadinkado before cutting it out with a nestie.  I then added Distress Ink around the image leaving the centre lighter to highlight the embossed image.

I cut out a few different sized poinsettia flowers from white and silver card and a couple of swirls from some green pearl card.  The smallest flower was punched with a Nellie Snellen punch and emboss set and the centre pearl created using a Waco Pearlmaker Pen.   I added touches of Stickles on the petals to bling it up a bit.  The sentiment is also heat embossed to match the image.

This turned into a sweet little card to add to my stock.  The colour would fit the Simply Less is More challenge this week, but I feel it's a tad too fussy to be classed as CAS

Thanks for dropping by today, I'm still not up to doing any crafting, but at least I have a few ready made projects to share with you in the coming days.
