A lovely christmas card this time featuring a snowman.
The card follows the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday:
The background papers for this card are from Bearly Mine Designs. I have matted the layer between with silver pearlised cardstock. The ribbon is a recent purchase - went into the shop to get something else and came out with a pack of Christmas ribbons. Hey, it did have 24 different christmas ribbons in the pack and the price was good too!
The image that I have used is the one for the challenge at Designed 2 Delight.
Because I wanted to show off the ribbon that I bought I kept trying to find small embellishments so that it didn't get hidden. I was going to use some small buttons but even then they started overshadowing the ribbon! In the end, I settled for these buckles that I bought the die-cut for at my card workshop last weekend. They are a Memory Box die and come in a set of three buckles. This is the middle sized one of the set. I die cut them out of some green glitter cardstock and I'm really pleased with how they turned out. Because they are quite open they have allowed the ribbon to have a bit more of the spotlight! I also extended the ribbon to the edges of the card to give it a little more prominence.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
