Stocking Snowy

Today's card features a cute little Penny Black snowman from the 'Holly-Jolly Christmas' set. I stamped him on to watercolour paper, then doodled some snowy ground before colouring him using watercolour pencils. I carefully cut around the top of the image, then made a snowy sky background using my 'Christmas Sentiments Background' stamp by Chloe Creative Stamps. I stamped it on to a snippet of paper from the 'Mystery Marbles' pad (by Craft Sensations) using Versamark Ink, then heat embossed it using 'Diamond White' embossing glitter from WOW.

What a sweet snowman card, Helen! Your doodled snowy ground perfectly grounds the snowman. The soft and warm texture of the watercolor penciling makes the snowman look cozy. Your Christmas sentiment background is amazing! I can imagine the beautiful sparkle of the glitter embossing.
Thank you so much for sharing this cute card with us at CAS Christmas!

What a delightful Christmas card Helen. Such a sweet snowman and the background is gorgeous - you reminded me that I bought that same stamp when you used it for Christmas just gone - bad me, it's still languishing here. And of curse the snowman is just adorable - Penny Black are the best!

Hugs
