Christmas Card Club - Snowmen

I am really late with my snowman card for Christmas card Club. We are a Christmas card making group who take turns choosing the  themes for a Fortnightly challenge.  Hyperlinks to the members blogs are on my right sideboard. Pop across and take a peek if you have time. Lots of talented ladies here!

This card is inspired by one I received a few years ago. The topper portion of my card (the image, the snowflake DP cut with a scalloped edge, and the snowflake) are very similar to that card. My girlfriend had this stamp set so I borrowed hers to stamp the image and sentiment. As I only had a small snippet of white card with me, I decided to copy my cousin in law's topper design.


Used up a snippet of  navy textured pearlescent card to form the first mat and then backed that with a silver DCWV Glitzy Glitter mat. The DP is Bo Bunny Dear Santa and I used a Threading Waters border punch on it, The white Martha Stewart snowflake was cut from another snippet and the star in the center of it is from a  Making Memories package of various sized glittered star stickers.

I scattered various other snowflakes in the top left corner and added some sapphire mini diamonds to the center of the larger stars, I sprinkled a few more here and there. I wanted them to tie in the navy mat colour.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Christmas Card Club - Snowmen

  10. This is wonderful! I love the way you've done the sky treatment and scallop edging for these terrific little snowies to throw up their hands in wonder at all the stars. Lots of bling and shimmer and I'm so happy you got it made to share with us. Some times things just get in the way of card making & posting, but this was well worth the wait! TFS & Hugs
