Christmas Card Club - Card 18/2019 - Snowman

Hello and Happy Sunday Everyone,

I'm having to schedule this post as I'm going to be at an all-day crop tomorrow. A whole day of making scrap pages - bliss! And, as time has been short, I've only managed to make one card for the Christmas Card Club. The theme, chosen by Valery, is snowman or snowmen.
As you can see, I've chosen to do just the one snowman - but he's a cute one. The bits and bobs box came in handy once more - it's where I found the piece of blue embossed card for the background for the topper. The card supplies for the snowman came out of the box of scraps, leftovers and snippets - I really could do with some sort of abbreviated name for those two boxes. Both the topper and the greeting are layered on to a very shiny silver card that hasn't photographed very well.

Here's a list of supplies used:

- a white card base
- the blue embossed card - the card has a special satin finish, very pretty, and the folder used was 'Stars Frame' from Crafts-Too
- scraps of white card and the silver card for the topper and greeting 
- stamps: 'Snowman' from Kars and two - the 'Merry & Bright' greeting and the 'snow flakes' - from the 'Forest Magic' stamp set - a magazine gift from a couple of years ago.
- inks: Ranger's Archival Ink in 'Jet Black' and Adirondack 'Stonewashed'
- markers in shades of grey, brown, blue, red and orange for colouring the snowman
- 'Fluffy Puffy Stuff' from Inkylicious for the fake snow

That's it for CCC today but I hope you will pop over to see what my teammates have created for Valery's theme - you'll find a list of their names and links on my right sidebar - as always they are so much more creative than me.
