Swanky Snowdude!

Good morning all! I hope you had a lovely weekend! I'm sharing another card over on the My Mums Craft Shop blog and I'm also kicking off a new blog theme for the week, which is a free choice week.
I suddenly realised that I haven't made a single Christmas card this year when normally I've made loads by now! This had to be rectified so this card was born! :-)


I started off stamping this cute fella (complete with moustache and pipe - hee hee!) from Paper Smooches Swanky Snowdudes in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured him in with Copics. He's cut out using a circle die (Die'Namics Circle Stax) and finished off with a swoosh of Stickles.
The background is made using the little snowflakes from the same snowman set in Stampin' Up Pool Party ink and just stamped randomly across the card blank. I stamped the two Pool Party banners too, one with My Favourite Things Darling Dots, and the other with a sentiment from Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler. Quick and simple to recreate and could be made in different colour ways to make a little set! Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

What a great way to add snowflakes to a background. They make the cardstock look like designer paper and the snowman is cute! Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos!
