Circle Card

Just when you thought it was safe - I make another Christmas card! This time I'm following a rather lovely sketch from The Sweet Stop. I've used Dovecraft Let It Snow papers both 12x12 and 6.5x4.5 sizes. The sentiment is from a 99p Studio G acrylic set.

The snowman is a digi image from Zlatoena Designs and he's been coloured with Promarkers plus a little glitter glue. I've added some ribbon where the different papers meet and also to hide the rather messy and nasty glue from trying to stick the icicles to the card - yeah, they look great but are a right bu**er to glue! That will be why they are actually for decorative purposes and not cardmaking! The tinsel that came off the icicles has also been added to the card.

A bit of inking, faux running stitch and liquid pearls and the card is complete!

And if you've not already popped over to the Fetch A Sketch pre launch party - please do so but be quick as it ends on Sunday 26 June! Some candy on offer to two lucky commenter's plus some extra prizes along the way! The Fetch A Sketch challenges launch on Monday 27 June at 9am!
