Snowman with heart...

Hi, don't you just love the weekends? I've had a really busy week at work so I was well ready for a crafting fix and as Christmas is creeping up on us so quickly i thought i'd make another Christmas card. I won't be caught out this year though, Irene, Max and Ann at Bah Humbug have kept me in the Christmas spirit all year  and I've almost got all my cards made (its not like me to be such a goody two shoes lol) Anyway this weeks theme at Bah Humbug is fancy folds, so I've made this card using this cute 'Snowman with Heart' from Michelle Perkett (he has 20% off this week as he is in the spotlight at Michelle Perkett Studios!!)

I don't know what this kind of fold is called, I did know but can't remember anyway its one of the few fancy folds i can manage as I'm not good at fancy folds. The snowman is coloured with promarkers and then I added some swirls with a versamark pen and some Shasta Puff EP and some irridescent glitter. The icicle border is made using a Marianne die (from Linda at Jazzlins Designs) and the snowflakes are cut with my cricut. The snowflakes are cut from white card and then glittered with crushed glass glitter and some more irridescent glitter (which looks blue on the pic for some reason) and gems in the centres
I added a couple of white organza bows and the sentiment which comes with the supercute snowman.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says: All White
ABC Christmas: Winter wonderland + white
Charisma Cardz: With love at Christmas
Polkadoodles: Quick and Easy Christmas
Top Tip Tuesday: Christmas Inspired

Thanks for calling by. Don't forget you still have time to enter this weeks 'Under the Sea' Challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studios.

  4. Hi Claire,
    I've seen this card popping up around blogland recently but can't for the life of me remember what it's called either LOL. Whatever it's name, it looks fabulous with your snowman and the icicle detail across the top is really effective, showing the different levels beautifully. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
