Holiday Wishes

Here is a selection of cute snowman cards which were made yesterday, each one slightly different so's not to be boring.

As you can see I need much more practice lining up the dots before embossing large areas in the Cuttlebug - whoops!

The "Holiday Wishes" greeting was computer generated and would be particularly appropriate for occasions when you are sending a card to someone who doesn't celebrate Christmas - whether for religious reasons or 'cos they suffer from the dreaded "Bah Humbug" affliction - but they would know you are thinking of them anyway.

The papers are Dovecraft 'Christmas Blues' from last years' stash -I bought a lorry load of them 'cos I liked them so much and then didn't use them.

Madness I know!

When I got fed up playing with the snowman, I made a very simple easel card using a different paper from the same range, some silver mirri card, metallic snowflake embellishments and a small dash of ribbon.
Sometimes you simply don't need an image as a focal point.
