Snowman Christmas Card

This is the only card I have done to order this Christmas, I have made it for a colleague for her granddaughter’s first Christmas.
I have used a digital download set from Sweet Shoppe Designs called Little Joys by Zoe Pearn.  It is sooooo cute.
I enlarged the snowmen to the size I needed, then printed and cut out a few spare so that I had enough make a simple decoupage with the scarves for extra dimension.
The snowman are standing on a layer of cream glitter card over a background paper from the set.
I have used small black Glitterati sticker dots to go over the eyes and mouth and a little Anita’s 3D clear gloss finish on the nose.
The letters are a mixture of alphabet stickers from American Crafts.
To match the printed zig zag pattern on the snowmen, I have doodled round the edge of the card in a light brown fine tipped pen.
As a first Christmas card is extra special I have added a strip of another backing paper from the set down the side of the envelope
And again on the inside, adding a snowman’s head peeping out.
Phew! I think this took me about an hour and a half to put together.
