High Hopes Snowman


Can you believe it we are approaching the last weekend of July and I'm getting slightly nervous about how many Christmas Cards I promised to make but haven't so remedy this here's a Snowman from High Hopes.
I followed the Christmas Challenges (with sketches) sketch even chosen the pattern paper to go with it!
But has you can see no patterned papers were hurt in making the card in fact they weren't used at all.
I've used the exclusive die from Simon Says Stamps for the star border and the Sizzix embossing folder for the circle mat which I then used the Martha Stewart snowflake punch to border it.
I did have a problem with the gems was having a real problem stepping away from them and I had to take some of them off.
Summer is here, well for a week a least but I think there a bit of a North and South divide with the weather not so good up North.

  1. Debby, he is gorgeous. I really love your cards but I'm rarely able to comment. It always makes me smile when I see your cards first thing in the morning - a lovely way to start the day. Thanks you. Kim x

  2. Fab card...I love these colours.

    I managed to find that lovely diamond embossing folder that I have admired on your cards. I even found some little gems to put on the crossed edges.
    I know my cards will look nothing like yours, but i am looking forward to trying out the folder.
