Christmas Cards 2014 - Retro Feel Snowman Christmas Card

This card measures 5ins x 5ins and is made using a hand cut plain red card blank.Retro Style Snowman Card 1I found several of these packs of canvas toppers in The Range sale for just 50p a pack, bargaintastic! But, what I am going do when I find any early Christmas “bargains” is to try to use them as soon as I can, otherwise they will just get put away and are then forgotten (well, they do in my case!).  This will also help me build up a good stock of cards way before I really need them.I’ve married the stickers up with some rather retro looking 8ins x 8ins  papers that I have had for so long I can’t even remember who made them.  There is a lot of mat and layering going on as you can see, with an equally amount of faux stitching.  The only thing that I really shouldn’t have added are the pearls ….. ugh!!!!  They really should be snowflakes …. but stuck so quickly that the card would have been ruined if I had tried to remove them, lesson learned!

Hi Helen. Love the toppers, what a bargain, and cards. Could you stick a snowflake on top of the pearls? I haven't made a single Christmas card yet, so much for my "getting organised" this year! Take care.

I must admit I like the vast majority of your cards and this is no exception. I think it's stunning! And a bargain price too.
