I woke up to snow this morning!  I am not a winter person, although I do enjoy the beauty of the snow.  You can get some gorgeous pictures but I would prefer the picture to the reality of the snow.  I think as a person gets older winter becomes more difficult.  I must say that I do want snow at Christmas.  Here is a Christmas card I made last week that I thought you might enjoy.


I made this for the Splitcoast sketch challenge.  This is my favorite Santa image which I purchased at Michaels.  The base is Real Red that I stamped using Stampin Up Snowflake stamp set and Versamark ink and heat embossed with Bridal embossing powder.  The two panels are Basic Grey Figgy designer paper layered on always artichoke.  Oval Coluzzle and oval scalloped Nestibilities show the image and a small circle Coluzzle and circle scalloped Nestibilities had the sentiment.  Both the image and sentiment are on dimensionals.  Image is stamped with black momento ink and was colored using Copics markers.  I added frosted Stickles to the snowflakes and dots of snow and then added Crystal Effects to the lens on the glasses.  Used a glitter brad on the sentiment to finish it off.  I am very happy with how this turned out and hope you enjoy it too.

Ink:  black momento, real red
