Skating Snowmen

I have a Christmas card to share today featuring another new stamp...'Skating Snowmen' by Woodware...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate paper...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my trusty CutterBee Bug* and a black gel pen.


Challenges for this card:

* CutterBee Bugs (by EK Success):


Love these simple little perforating tools...they really help to make my faux stitching look 'real'!

The patterned paper goes so well with the polka dots in the snowman scarf! Very pretty! I have seen those little tools before and thought about getting them. I love the way the stitching looks in you card, too!
