Framed Snowman Christmas Card

This hand cut card measures 5.5ins x 5.5ins.
I love the wooden frames sold not only in Hobbycraft, but also in The Works and Poundland etc.  I am just at a bit of a loss as to how to use them on a card. My imagination goes no further than simply framing a sentiment/greeting or creating a little scene and although that’s a little boring, despite extensive searches on Pinterest and Google I haven’t found any other ideas that inspire me ….. so I am still working on it……

However, having said that I am really pleased with this snowman card. The grey wood effect frame was the starting point, followed by the wooden snowman on a glitter card snow background. The snowman was from Lldl a couple of Christmas’s ago and I really wish they would stock them again.  I bought so many, but I am now down to my last few.

It was finding the right paper to cover the front of the card that took almost all of my time, but I think I got there in the end.  The wooden snowflake and the extra dusting of glitter on the snowman’s scarf and hat were the last things to go on.  I think the card could take a little more fiddle fart, but for the time being I’ll just leave it as it is.
