Carolling snowmen

   For this card I matted falling snow paper printed from Crafter's Companion 'The Snowman and the Snowdog' CD ROM onto black and then white card.
   The image of the snowmen is from Beccy's Place and I coloured this using Promarkers.I cut it out using a Spellbinders die and while it was still in the die rub distress inkaround the upper edges. I then matted it onto black card which had been cut out using a Spellbinders scalloped circle die. I then added black Stickles to the 'coal' buttons and diamond Stickles to one edge of each snowman.
   The tags are digi stamps from Digi Stamps 4 Joy. The undernearth one was coloured using Promarkers and after I had applied distress ink to the edges I matted it onto black card. I applied Stickles to the snowflakes on the top tag and allowed this to dry before rubbing distress ink over the whole of the tag and then matting it onto black card. I added the silver sentiment to the top tag and then a bow after I had attached them to the card using varying thicknesses of foam pads.
