Snow People!

I've managed to make a card for the challenge at CD Sunday! The theme this week is Snow People so I thought it just had to be a Christmas card - that's my third Christmas card I've made this year and it's still only September LOL!
I used an image from Hallmark Card Studio and framed it with blue Centura pearl card. I then used a Marianne Design die to cut another frame from white Centura pearl card. I also embossed the white frame using parts of a Crafts Too embossing folder. It was quite tricky to just emboss the snowflakes and to get them in the right place on the frame - I don't think it worked that well so won't be trying that again LOL! I also cut small mats using a set of Crafts Too dies and put snowflake embellishments on them. The greeting is from a very old set of Dufex stickers.

This card was a trial run of a card I've made for the Lothian Crafts Challenge. The theme will be announced on 1st October. The dies I've used can be bought from Lothian Crafts Online and there's still a chance to get discount in the birthday celebrations which end 30th September.
I'm also entering this into the 'Oldie but a goodie' Challenge. Several things I've used I've had for longer than 6 months. The Hallmark Card Studio I've had for at least 6 years! The Crafts Too embossing folder and the Dufex sticker are also more than 6 months old.

I came first with the above card.
