Oh boy, am I behind on making christmas cards. I try to make 10 cards a month. This is May and this is my first card. I haven't done too well this year on keeping up! I love the way this card came out. I don't like how time intensive it was. I opted not to go for a shading effect on the coloring as I was trying to save a step. I think for a mass produced card I would skip all of the bottom embellishments on the card front.
I used Sweet and Sassy's sketch challenge for this week as my layout. I gathered scraps of christmas paper for the dp and I bought this cute, cute little snowman from Whipper Snapper.
I then added a very tiny bit of a cotton ball around the bottom of the snowman for a snow effect.


  1. Adorable! Very cute card, Karen. You are getting a good jump start!

  2. Acck, I can see why you love this card, Karen!! And are you telling me it's possible to color with copics and not spend hours? After shading, coloring, shading, today, I didn't know that was an option...and it still looks great!! That snowman is one of the cutest I've seen! Wonderful card!

  3. Wow a Christmas card in do you do it...I just can't get in that mode until November...then again I am finishing my Christmas cards the week of Christmas! Wonderful very cute! Thanks for playing along with the Sweet Stop!
