First Christmas card of 2013

Heya! Phew, we've been getting lots and lots and LOTS of snow again. I think I will need to leave home tomorrow again if I want to get to work in time. It's been snowing heavily the whole afternoon and I don't think it'll stop anytime soon.

With all this snow I think the card I want to show you today is perfect. It's the first Christmas card I've made in 2013.

I used the sweet Pickles from Wild rose studio as my main image. I colored him with Promarkers and Fabes Castell pencils. On the white part of the cap I used glitter glue. The star paper that I used on the left side of my card is from Folia. That's the only dp I used. The paper with music notes was actually a white cardstock which I inked with TH Antique linen DI and stamped over it with Kaisercraft stamp. Ovals are SB dies. I embossed the white oval with Cuttlebus swiss dots embossing folder and then inked the raised dots with my stamp pad. The border you can see going down the middle of the card is my new Cart-us die. The gold stars are cut from a star ribbon that you can buy at Crafty ribbons store. The paper stars under the ribbon ones are my new Nellie Snellen dies. I inked those stars with TH distress ink and embossed them with Cuttlebug EF.
