Brrr Its Cold Outside

Well it was when this jolly snowman was made!!!

This card was made from a kit and I just had to share it with you as its small but perfect!!!

The kit was bought from http://www.lynzeysplace.com/ and comes complete with the card, decoupage, insert and envelope all for an amazing 75p!!!!

I printed the sheets out then used Crafters Companion Stick and Stay to attach the sheet to a sheet of lilac A4 cardstock, then cut the base card out.

The decoupage was cut out carefully and each layer was shaped and mounted using tiny sticky pads.

There are lots and lots of layers of decoupage but I stopped when I felt it had enough for my taste - in fact you could even get this card and enough decoupage left to make another just supplying your own backing and card blank!!!

I edged the snowman and the christmas trees in the background with a quickie glue pen and sprinkled with glamour dust then coloured the trim on one childs hat, pom pom and snowball on the other child with the quickie glue pen and covered the area with glamour dust.

The snowflake dots on the hats were done with the white enamel accents and the face of the snowman with the black enamel accents.

The envelope was made up by cutting out both pieces and scoring the edges, then I added double sided tape to the edges and once the backing paper was removed I rubbed a pritt stick over the sticky so if I didnt position correctly I could move it and try again!

The insert was trimmed to fit the card and then attached with a small piece of double sided tape at the top and bottom

I must just mention the back of the card is as pretty as the front - see the photo....

And dont forget where this kit and more can be purchased
