Another cute Elzybells christmas card!

Here is another of my recent christmas card makes (not many left to go now!). It also meets three of this weeks challenge requirements. Papertake Weekly's challenge is 'let it snow, let it snow, let it snow'. Cute Card Thursday's challenge is similar, to use 'snow and snowflakes' and finally I have used the sketch from i{heart}2stamp challenge.

I adore this Elzybells christmas image. I got this stamp quite late on in my christmas card making so consequently have only made a few with this image, which is a shame as I love it! I coloured the image with whispers pens before distressing the background with a bronze ink pad. I also added snowtex and glamour dust for the snow effect! I also added some glossy accents to the reinders nose! The star brad is from papermania. All papers are BG from the wassial pad, I love the soft snowflake effect of the paper. The gold snowflakes were puched from gold card with my xcut punch and gold adhesive gem stones added to the centres. The sentiment is from a see D's set. I also decorated the back of the card with my new personalised stamp.

I cut the circle and scalloped circle out with my nesties. Sorry about the slightly blurred pic, but you get the idea!

I've been trying my best to get around all your lovely blogs to see what you've been up to and to leave you some comments, but if I haven't been in the last few days I apologise. I seem to have a lot on my plate at the moment and am struggling to fit everything in!

Hope you are all keeping well!

Big Hugs, Vicky x

Hi Vicky - I love it. I have now made a decision that I am not going to buy any more Christmas Stamps!!. I just love the colours of the DP you have used. I managed at long last to get one of these pads but have not yet had the time to use it. My visitors have gone to stay with my dad until Sunday, so hopefully I will get a bit of time to craft tonight and Saturday - I have a wedding to go to tomorrow - where does all the time go.

This is gorgeous - the colours you have used work really well with that adorable image and make such a nice change from the usual red/blue/greens that you tend to see for xmas
