My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

4 January 2013

Frosty The Snowman

Afternoon, I'm back with another make and before you all groan, yes it's a Christmas card .... but I am determined to make an early start this year as I didn't make enough last year and this resulted in me having to buy some!!  Not going to do that again, not only did it cost me a fortune, it didn't feel personal enough for me.

Anyway, here's the card:

Card Ingredients:

Digi Stamp Boutique Henry & Zoe & Snow Digi Stamp
Memory Box Frosty Border Die
Kaisercraft Greeting Stamp
Stampin' Up Not Quite Navy Ink
Pearls & Gems - NEC Stash
Liquid Pearls
Frosted Lace Stickles
Paper & Card from Stash

I am entering this into following challenges:

Sketch Saturday 239
Sparkles 24 Snowmen
Stampavie and More 184 Blue & White
I love Promarkers 149 Monochrome
Charisma 52 Monochrome

  6. Fab card Claire - I'm with you - I had to buy some Christmas cards this year and not only did I get into bother with the old man - cos they just cost the earth - I too didn't feel as though they were personal enough.
