Frosty the Snowmen

Morning Everyone,

Remember the LOTV snowmen family, lol.  Well, my chap who always buys his cards from me loved them so I had to do another one for him.  So I had to put my thinking cap on with this one, made a little easier by my guest position at the Ribbon Girl and the fabulous inspiration photo.

I have added the Marianne Design window again, love this die and added some gupe lace behind the window as a blind.  The papers are MayaDesign Vintage Christmas Time 6x6 paper pad from Live and Love Crafts and I managed to still capture the baubles hanging down on the right hand side.

Here's the inspiration photo that I followed at the Ribbon Girl.

I have used the white daisys and added red kort and godt roses to the centres and some white stamen to the sides.  I added red berries and glass glitter, all available from the Ribbon Girl. There is lots of frosting, my beloved snow tex of course and gesso here and there.

I have also used the new picket fence and only the plain was available so I painted it using white gesso.  The trees are a Distinctively Dees Die and I added lots of diamond stickles.  I finished off at the bottom with 12mm danielle lace from the Ribbon Girl. The snowflakes around the edge are by Noor Design/Joycraft, another favourite die.

I also had to make a quick card for my nephew and you know I don't really enjoy boy cards, not me at all, so I reached for some dies. I have used 3 Marianne Design dies, the zipper, the silouette men on the pocket and also the Happy Birthday text.  The paper is from the latest Marianne Design release All for the men. The zip pull is by Prima Junkyard Findings Zipper Pulls

Have a good Sunday.
