Penny Black Red White and Blue!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge have a red white and blue challenge this week and I thought, why not enter this card. My favourite snowman. I used him loads of times last Christmas and will probably use him again this Christmas and many Christmas's to come! Thinking about it, maybe I should've given him a red hat and scarf, but I like the blue. I used my Whisper Pens this time. The blue spotty paper was a freebie I downloaded sometime ago. Using my Nestabilities I cut a rectangle 'window' into the covered card, cut it to shape, then replaced the cut out card with acetate, sticking it down on the inside with double sided tape. Added white peel-off dots, which are edged with silver, to the acetate to look like more 'snow' falling around the two snowmen, and a red sticky ribbon (TrimCraft) with a snowflake, from stash, and a red peel off, 'Merry Christmas' Here's a link to another one...almost the same, the poor snowman inside the card, didn't have any snow to stand on though ( aw shame!)
There you go... now, that's two Christmas Cards I've finished ... another 70 odd to go!
Back again! (thought you'd got rid of me didn't you!) Just a quick hi and (((wave))) to a New Follower!! Alcjmiller, better know as Carolyn, pop over to Creative Card Corner You'll find some lovely Penny Black, Tilda and a brilliant card made of shells! It's well worth a visit!
Thanks for stopping by!
