Blue Christmas

After a request to make a special Christmas card for a new baby boy, I scoured the internet for suitable ideas and found this delightful snow baby image by Jenni Hamilton at Card Mad Fairy's creations. There are some lovely images to be had there with prices starting from 50p - it's certainly a site to add to your favourites if you like digi stamps. There's some particularly lovely oriental images that would be fab for Chinese New Year cards.

The papers I've used are just basic pastel stripes and spots from my stash, the matting shape is from Nellie's and I've coloured him with promarkers. I don't know if you can tell from the photo but I've added white glitter to the 'fur' on his snow suit.

I've entered this card into the following challenges:

Delightful Challenges - Blue Christmas
The Pink Elephant - Snowflakes and sparkle

Season's Greetings!


  1. Aww, what a perfect image for a baby's first Christmas card! Just gorgeous.

  2. Oh, this is amazing! PERFECT for a first Christmas--and since you personalized it, it can be remembered and treasured for years to come! WONDERFUL! :)

  3. Really cute card, love the sparkle!

    Thank you for sharing with us at Delightful Challenges this week, good luck!
