'Tis the Season ...

 ... to start thinking about those Christmas cards.


On Wednesday I mentioned the lovely City Sidewalks range from Pink Paislee.  I actually had two Christmas cards to share with you but time ran away with me (as always) and so I did not get chance to show you.

So here is the second Christmas card using some of the City Sidewalks range as well as a little of the Aspen Frost range from Basic Grey


(you can view the shopping list by clicking onto the links in the project guide)

This little card is really quite simple to make ... 

Two pieces of patterned paper are added to the bottom of the card with double sided tape.  N.B. the red striped paper in the middle is actually  red Trendy Tape from Queen & Co. 

The snowmen, which are from an Artemio Christmas Stamp Set were stamped directly onto the base card and again onto patterned paper.  The scarves have been coloured with a distress ink pen (Barn Door) and the shadow on the snowmen was added with a Tumbled Glass distress ink pen.

The snowmen were trimmed (I cut the arms off when trimming).  They have then been adhered to cardstock and trimmed again (leaving a little border of card around each snowman). 

The trimmed snowmen are then positioned over the snowmen which have already been stamped onto the base card and stuck with foam pads to add a little dimension.

To finish the card add a little sentiment and a little doodling with a black pen!

Hope you enjoy!
