Let It Snow!

Another Christmas card today, I'm afraid...although my pile is growing nicely, I still need to keep cracking on with them. I've used an adorable Lili of the Valley James the Bear image called 'In the Snow', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I embossed some blue Core'Dinations card using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and 'Ice Crystal' folders, sanding over it to reveal the core...then lightly distressed the edges with my distressing tool. I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border, and cut the snowflake using my Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' die...it's held in place with an American Crafts sparkly brad.
