52CCT - Theme .....

.... Hello, good morning!  It's time for our new theme challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Tanja has picked the theme of snowman.  I had so much fun with this theme, here's my card:

Christmas Wishes - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Funstamps - Scribble Snowman; Uniko - Stunning Snowflakes
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black, London Fog
Dies: PTI - Wet Paint Holiday
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! - Basic Black; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Perfect Pearls - Pewter; Peel Offs


I used the sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#195 for the layout and the colours are from Colour Me Card Challenge - CMCC#80.  I stamped snowflakes randomly over the card in Versamark and used pewter Perfect Pearls to bring them out.  I stamped the snowman three times on white card and coloured them with Copic Markers.  I cut them out, edged them with a black marker and added some sparkle to the hats and scarves with a clear Wink of Stella brush.  I adhered the first snowman flat to the card, and used dimensional gel for the other two.  I die cut the word Christmas four time in black, glued them together and attached it to the card.  I finished with a peel off which I coloured black.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and stamped a Christmas greeting on the white panel, along with some more snowflakes.
