52CCT - Theme ....

.... Hello! I'm running a bit late with my card for our new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT37-16. This week is our theme challenge and Fabiola has picked a really fun one for us to play with

note the people - not just one!!

Here's my card:

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

Stamps: Bugaboo Digital - Snowman Family; Clearly Besotted - Sweet Little Sentiments, All Occasion Sentiments
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Real Red; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Lil Inkers - Dual Stitched Rectangles #2
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; SU DP - Real Red; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Glitter

I have several fun snowman stamps, but I wanted to create a snow family, so I decided to check on the Internet. I found that Bugaboo (one of my favourite digital companies) is having a flash 70% sale (ending 18th September), so I popped over and found this image (amongst many others).

I printed the image on white card, coloured with Copic markers and cut it out with a stitch edged die. As there's some stitching on the image, albeit faux, I'm submitting to Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#97. I used the colours from Just Us Girls - JUGS#361 - they are bold and bright, just right. I added lots of sparkle to the finished image with several different types of glitter and some clear Wink of Stella to the snow folk. I layered the image on black card and adhered it to the card. I finished the front with a simple greeting. On the inside I cut a mat layer of red design paper and on the white panel added another greeting along with a couple more of the snow folk.

Do visit our blog to see more inspiration from the rest of the team. I am sorry that the photos are so dark - it's really dull here today, I'll try to get some better photos later this week. There is a reason why I'm late with today's card - you'll get to see it tomorrow!! See you then.
