Hat’s off

Hi again

I’m back with another card – a Christmas one this time – as I try to build up my stack!!    I’ve used Hat’s Off by LOTV again, but with a different colour combo, and I’ve added a variety of papers and a couple of die cuts.   I think this little guy looks so cheery and he’s sure to put a smile on anyone’s face this Christmas.   I coloured the Christmas trees to match the colours on the snowman’s scarf, and added shabby white frantage, which I’ve also used on the snowflake and around the edge of the centre die cut.   I’m beginning to enjoy using frantage now – although I did singe the edge of a tree not so long ago.   Then I thought the trees merged into the papers, so I embossed some of their edges with gold embossing powder.   The snow is Alene’s glitter snow and I added Glamour Dust for extra sparkle.


What I used –

LOTV stamp – coloured with Promarkers      Sentiment from DSB

Papers from Nitwits and Bugaboo

Dies – Christmas tree from Marianne Designs, snowflake from Joy Crafts
