Merry Friends

Hi there 🙂  With the snow outside, it feels “natural” to make Christmas cards!!  It’s creeping up, as well, so time to stock up!  For this one, I used a sweet image from Mo’s Digital Pencil.  These sweet girls, Irma and Vieno,  are bundled up, ready for whatever weather blows in 🙂  I got this fabulous paper in a recent swap, so wanted to use it as well….and….hold on to your hats….I actually matched the coloring to the paper!!! Doing it this way works SO much better than winging it and hoping things match up! LOL  Yeah, yeah, what a concept, huh?  Anyway, after I colored the girls with my Prismacolor pencils, I die cut them out with a Nellie Snellen nesting die.  I wanted to use as much of these coordinating papers as I could, so I turned to the current sketch at The Sketchy Challenges for inspiration (did I ever mention that I loooove the sketches from them??? check them out!)

For the middle band, I used a piece of ribbon and some green twine.  I die cut the stamped and embossed sentiment out with another Nellie die, then cut a few snowflakes with some snowflake dies that, like a dummy, I didn’t record the manufacturer, and with soooo many snowflake dies out there, I can’t give credit where it’s due 🙁  I’m so happy with how this card turned out 😀
