Tom & Emma's Christmas Card

Happy Christmas Eve every one! Now that Tom and Emma have received their Christmas card, I guess it's okay to show it to you! I've used Pink Petticoat Papers all in Ocean, which is a sort of a pale blue. I printed out some swirls, stars and just plain blue, which is nice, so it all matches.
The three little snowmen, I'm sure are Penny Black, were a RAC some time ago. (It's surprising what I can find when I'm looking for something else!)

I've used a 3D effect. Fast becoming my favourite way of doing things. Coloured one image, then cut out another and fixed it over the top of the first, so you still get all the fiddly bits without having to cut round them.
I place the second image face down in the palm of my hand and then just swirl a finger round and round (or use a large balled embossing tool) until the paper/card curls a little. Then just fix it over the first image with silicone glue.
I've used a cuttlebug die cut for one corner, using the same colour to keep it matching. Coloured the snowman images using Promakers and added micro fine glitter everywhere it would stick!

For the scalloped circles I've used a large 3" Woodware punch and the largest Nestie scalloped circle. The flowers, gems, snowflakes, pearls, ribbon are all from stash. Fern leaves, are of course a Martha Steward punch. The inside message was done on the computer. It's called Handscript SF and can be downloaded for free HERE
