This week I have mixed the snowman from Holly Jolly with music from Jingle Belles, ribbon, papers and gems from 52 CCT and a little faux stitching from CraftyHazelnut. It's all blue and white so it also qualifies as a male Christmas card for Cards for Men who are doing Christmas in July.
Talking of cards for men, have you had a look at the new challenge blog for male cards? It's called The Male Room and it launches next Wednesday with an 'Anthing Goes' theme. Please pop over and have a look, every day until the launch they are showing a new card made by the design team to get you inspired.
Back to the snowman, he has been cut using a Sizzix die-Winter Wonder from music card made by stamping in Distress Ink faded Jeans on to white card, the edges are blended with the same ink. He then has 25 cut out using a Sizzix Movers and Shapers die with silver star mirri card placed behind.
He is mounted with foam pads on to a snowfall embossed panel that has faux stitching around the edge and a blue ribbon across the lower part. The paper underneath that is from my stash, it's been around for some time so I can't remember where it came from. There are three gems in the corners on this paper and a snowflake to finish it off.
