Charlie Caroling


I decided to use up some last years Echo Park Winter papers and I saw this piece with a snow scene and decided since time is in short supply I would make a quick card. Then I decided I needed to give the little chap a white border maybe not so quick after all.

The little choir boy is a Mo Manning image called Charlie Caroling he does have some fellow companions Maisie and Victorian or you can buy the set with Christmas Street Lamp.

To decorate I cut out some musical notes in fun foam along with the snowflake this means no trying to match up the layering and is quicker. I have an old MFT button dies to cut out the button for snowflake this I did layer a couple of times it also gave it a bit strength to tie the sparkly knot.

Now we are almost in July Christmas is sneaking to the fore front of my mind.

Fantastic card Debby! I've been a follower for a while and I'm in awe of your cards. The fun foam notes and snowflake are a wonderful addition to the card. I've just been reading your tutorial again and see that you mention some silicon glues leave watermarks. I've just had this problem with Pinflair and it ruined two of my cards. I would be very grateful if you would tell me which glue you use so I can avoid this happening again. Thanks, Debra x
