Chilly Christmas

Hello fellow bloggers, i hope you are all keeping warm and crafting happily. Are you all ready for Christmas yet? I'm not and i don't like being not ready lol
Ive only just got around to making my family Christmas cards and this is the one i made for my darling hubby Steve

I made the whole card, except the silver snowflake and pink gem, using goodies from a Craftwork Cards goodybag i managed to buy for £5 when they had a deal on a few weeks ago. The die cut images are simply adorable and i chose the penguin and bear holding a heart and mistletoe, coloured with pro markers and glittered with clear glitter glue and added snowy glitter to the falling snowflakes. I cut a matt of the green paper slightly bigger than the die cut image and stuck the image onto this, covered a card with the blue & sliver embossed paper. Stuck the image matt into the bottom corner of the card and added a die cut 'christmas kisses' sentiment, stuck onto a die cut tag, to the top corner. I wanted to add a little bling as it was for my hubby i didn't want to make it too girly so i added a plastic silver snowflake i found in my stash and used a pink gem to tie in with the pink heart the penguin is holding.
Hubby liked it, thankfully.

Thank you for looking and happy crafting
