Baby’s First Christmas Card

I made a very similar card to this a couple of Christmas’s ago, but when an idea turns out so well, it’s always worth trying it again using slightly different colours/papers etc.

The papers are from a download called Little Joys by Zoe Pearn. I’ve certainly had my moneys worth, as I have used papers and elements from the set over and over again - but sadly no longer available. It’s the simplicity and cuteness of the snowman that I love.

I’ve added a simple decoupage layer for the snowmen’s scarves, small black Glitterati stickers for their eyes and mouth, and a bit of Anita’s 3D clear gloss finish (about £2.99) to add dimension to the buttons and noses.  The self adhesive letters are Forever Friends “Cosy Christmas” alphabet stock (FFS 803100) bought in a sale a while back.

As this was a special card, I have also decorated the front and inside of the envelope too.
