Let's Chill

Hello Chums!
 
Hope this post finds you all fit and well! I've had a fairly lazy day today, but I have managed to make another Christmas card.
 
 
 
 
I love the colours on this one. I was inspired by an old collection of Bo Bunny 'Tis The Season. I have used my fave stamp set of the moment, Swanky Snowdudes by Paper Smooches. I punched a scallop edge onto some turquoise card using the Scallops On the Edge die by Tim Holtz. I then attached this to the top of an A6 blank.
 
Next I stamped and heat embossed the images with black Versfine and clear embossing powder and coloured in with Promarkers. I punched out the images using various sized punches, along with circles in lime, red and chocolate. After mounting each image onto a coloured circle, I wrapped a length of white sparkly ribbon around the turquoise section and knotted at the left. The images were then arranged and stuck down with foam pads. I finished with some Shimmer Dots by Papermania on the snowflakes.
 
I think it a fresh, fun and simple card. I had a lot of fun creating this one.
 
Well, that's it for today. Got to go and get ready, off to an Indian restaurant in Aylsham with some friends for a curry (nom nom). I bet we'll all smell lovely tomorrow!
 
Take care and thanks for looking.
