A SNOWY CHRISTMAS CARD FOR MY MUM :O)

Here is the card I've made for my Mum, she LOVES snowmen so when I found the lovely glittery snowman paper in a Dovecraft Let it Snow pack I knew I had to use them in a creation for my Mum. I was also itching to use my Marianne Creatables snowflakes dies and a super cute snowman digi stamp I won a while back from Robyns Fetish.... so I set to work and after more than a couple changes in direction, this is what came together.

The glittery snowflakes were made by die cutting plain white snowflakes, adding a little colour to the centres using promarkers, I then completely covered each snowflake with Glossy Accents and then coated with Glamour dust, bit messy and fiddly but the final result was worth it. I also glitzed up the little white mulberry poinsettias by dismantling them and coating the layers with glossy accents and glamour dust, I then reassembled them and added some silver spacers and pearls for the centres. The cute "With love to you at Christmas" stamp is from Stamping All Day, there's a link in my sidebar if you fancy a look.
