Keeping Christmas - Season's Greetings



Welcome to the Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop!  If you are looking for some inspiration for Christmas cards, you have come to the right place.  Our team has decided to do a monthly Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop! We will be sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month.

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in our stash all ready to go for December 2018!
 
 
I stamped an adorable snowman from Gerda Steiner Designs' Snowman Friends clear stamp set and colored it with my copics.  I added some Glamour Dust to the hat for a bit of sparkle.  I fussy-cut the snowman then used a black glaze pen on the snowman's eyes and Nuvo Crystal glaze on the buttons and jingle bell.  I cut a circle of watercolor paper, applied distress ink, spattered it with water, and adhered this to my cardbase.  I used the My Favorite Things Stitched Circle Frames Die-namics to cut the window frame and then adhered acetate and added sequins to make the shaker.  I diecut a snowflake, covered it with Glamour Dust, and added a red enamel dot to the center.  I adhered the snowman and snowflake to the shaker frame.
