Bring On The Choir

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and your week is going okay.  

Today I wanted to share this christmas card that I made using a Pink Gem image for the Gems of Inspiration blog.  I have used one of the new October digi images called Funky Snowman and he can be found here.

I took the single digi image into my graphics programme and copied him so I had six images.  I then merged the images together to create a little choir of snowmen.  The whole image was then printed onto a square of white card.  I matted onto some blue cardstock after lightly inking the edges and adding some faux stitching. If you zoom into the image you can also see that I have added lots of glamour dust. I also stamped a few snowflakes in really light blue ink.  The sentiment is a rub on that I have had since last christmas.  For embellishments I added a couple of wooden trees that I added stickles too and some gems.

This was a really quick card to make and think it will suit my nephews perfectly for christmas.  Thanks for popping by.

This is such a lovely, happy Christmas card that I'm sure your nephews will love Mags. Being of a curious nature I do enlarge all photographs and when I enlarged your Snowman Choir I really did see the full beauty of the work in this card (you may have heard my exclamation of delight) The glitter dust has really made your snowmen choir Pop and I love your light and airy snowflakes. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid (OSAAT Team)

Just one of these cute guys would look adorable but I love how you have merged them together. I think this would be perfect for a male Christmas card (especially for a guy who likes bowling!) Thank you for participating in our Christmas at Sweet Stampin' challenge this month. Hugs, Lesley
