I used Real Red Card Stock to frame all the layers and highlight the bit of red in the pretty paper patterns. These adorable papers make wonderful backgrounds and is a great way to speed up your card making. If you have a lot of Christmas cards to make, this is a real time saver!
I actually colored in the snowman first using my Stampin' Blends Color Lifter. Not only does it help to remove color where you don't want it, but if you use it first before applying color it will help to lighten the color you're applying.
Finally, some Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon was added to give a little sparkle, and I was done!
Here's an inexpensive holiday card design idea you can make.
The inspiration for this handmade greeting card layout came from the MojoSketch 527 shown on the right. What other cute homemade Christmas cards could you come up with to make your holiday cards this year?
