Back again for a quick post for my first Christmas card of the year!!  Even with the nasty heat we had last week, for some reason I have been dreaming of fall/Christmas cards.  So I decided to break down and make one today.
When I saw the sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketches, the idea just popped into my head.  And wouldn't you know, it came together just perfectly!
How cute!!!  I just love this little snowman family image from Dilly Bean.  I believe it was a freebie last year.  It's just so cute.  Everything on this card is pretty straight forward.  I colored in the image with my colored pencils (like always :) ).  The only difference this time is I finally used some of the Copics Sketch markers I won from Frosted Designs a few weeks back!  I've been scared to use them because I'm not exactly a Copics expert..but I love seeing cards that have the little blue line around the image highlighting it.  And I thought that would look so cute with snowmen, so I gave it a shot!
Whatcha think?  Can you see it in there?  It's more noticeable on the far left snowman's head...I think my lamp or flash washed out the rest of it.  I'll need some practice to steady my hand a bit, but I think it turned out cute.

The blue panel behind the ribbon is embossed with a snowflakes folder, though it's mostly hidden.  For the large snowflakes, I took one of the cut files that I already had of a snowflake, and altered it to have a ribbon bracket in the middle!  I love it!  I covered both layers in glitter and then slid the blue ribbon through the bracket and layered it on some white ribbon!  How cool is that?

Then I just cut out a small tag for my stamped sentiment and tucked it behind the image!  I probably could add some glitter to the snowmen, but I like them just fine without :)
