Jolly Christmas

Hello fellow Crafters,

At the VivaLasVegaStamps! blog there is a brand-new challenge for December and although I haven't got any festive stamps from VLVS! I decided to play anyway. I made a postcard:

The base of this card is blue/white pattern paper of which I inked the edges with brown ink. The background stamps are all from VLVS! They are '19468 clock face', '5210 collage writing and one I haven't got the name/number off as it came in a grab bag; it is a postmark with some writing next to it. Next I stamped '9901 leapfrog man' and coloured him in with a mixture of pencils and copic markers. The snowman was made by me with circle dies, pencils, copics, a branch die and some raffia for his bow. I adhered him to the card on top of some washi tape and used some more at the top for balance. Next the man was glued on top of the snowman and the last thing I did was use my old type writer to make the sentiment, which was inked, cut in pieces and adhered to the card. 

This card is based on this Inspiration board :

I used the following elements : blues, whites, off whites, black, brown, stripes, bows, winter, Christmas and snowman.

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it ...
