Snowman with Snowballs card

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful Easter holiday, and had enough chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth. We had a lovely peaceful weekend spent mostly with family and friends, and the weather was gorgeous, so I feel that spring has well and truly sprung at last. I enjoyed using my Silhouette Cameo for my last card, so I turned to it again to make some table favours for our family Easter Dinner

I embossed some glassine bags with an embossing folder and used a file from the Silhouette store and lots of snippets of card and paper to make the bag toppers. Some of the card ( on the chick, the grass, and the word) looked a bit stark, so I used background stamps to give them a little 'texture'.

Inside were some chocolate chip cookies, dipped in yet more chocolate, along with a little chocolate bunny.

Anyway, for my card today we are going forward to Christmas for the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge

We have reached week 16 already and this time the theme is Snowmen/Snowballs, and there is a prize from our sponsor 2 Cute Ink up for grabs. Here is my card

I took some textured navy card and used texture paste, some glitter and a stencil to add a snowy background. The snowman was stamped, embossed, coloured  and cut out, before I attached him to the panel with foam pads next to a pile of snowballs. Finally, I made a sentiment panel and added it to the top of the card. This cheerful scribble snowman is my favourite snowman of all time, and I can just imagine him throwing all those snowballs when my back is turned!
