It's getting nearer!!!

Hi there everyone

You might note from the title that I'm still aiming to be more prepared for Christmas this year, lol.  This time I've used a snowman from Funkykits (I think).  I've kept this card quite simple as the image is pretty large.  Once again the Copics have come out to colour him in, and I've finally used some Kraft card that I bought ages ago, and then forgot about!!!  I punched around the edge of my white paper with a Martha Stewart punch, then thought it still looked a bit plain, so ran it through my Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder to give it a bit more texture.  I then added a bit of corrugated card that came as packing with a craft order one day (got to recycle!).  Once again, I designed the ticket sentiment on my computer and then cut it out with my trusty ticket die from Whimsy.  The snowflake is a large Marianne die, and the small snowflake is the much used Martha Stewart punch.  A good sprinkle of Glamour Dust, and that's about all there is to it.

Please feel free to leave me a comment if you have time.
