Christmas Card Frenzy....continued..

The Christmas cards are being produced at an alarming rate...



Like most people I have trouble with cards for men - my comfort zone is definately more pink and bling rather than masculine. I've tried to keep this card plain but cute. The sticker started life as a gift tag from the Pound Shop but I carefully scraped the 'to' and 'from' off it to use as a topper!
These Golden Oldie decoupage sheets are really sweet... not too awkward to cut either.

These nestabilities are proving to be a Godsend! This very simple card was knocked up in minutes using glittery peel-offs and a ribbon.

I saw a card in a similar style on someone's Etsy site and I couldn't resist having a go at my own version. I traced the snowman from a Christmas designs book and just outlined it with a fineliner pen to add emphasis. The backing paper is actually double-sided wrapping paper from Paperchase - very useful for a snow effect!
