Snowflakes Everywhere!

Hi everyone,

I can't believe it has been a week since my last post...... and that it is November already - where is the time going!!! Christmas is going to be here before we know it.  The rush is now on to get all my Christmas cards finished so I can post them off to all my friends and family in the UK.

Today I am sharing a card with one of my favourite stamps - LOTV James the Bear- In the Snow which I coloured with my copics. Unfortunately he is now retired, but they have load of other adorable stamps. 

LOTV - James - In the Snow
LOTV - Christmas Sentiment Tags
Spellbinders Dies Standard Circles Large
Spellbinders Dies - Lacy Circles
Memory Box Dies - Crystalline Border
Neenah Cardstock - Desert Storm
Sweet Shoppe - Tis the Season For: Joy Digital Snowflake Paper
Silver glitter paper and white glitter paper
Memento - Rich Cocoa Pad
Ranger Stickles Waterfall Glitter

 Ribbon, Twine and Snowflake charm from stash

This card is covered in snowflakes - snowflake paper, snowflake die-cuts and even a snowflake charm!  
For the top half of the card I die-cut different shapes and sizes of snowflakes using Memory Box Crystalline border and glued them to the cardstock to give an embossed appearance. I also die-cut the flakes in silver and white glitter paper and surrounded James with them. For the snowfall I used liquid pearls.  I love glitter and sparkle on my wintry Christmas cards and couldn't resist using Wink of Stella on his hat and covering the ground with some glitter glue!

Here is a close up of James:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking, and hopefully I'll be back soon with some more cards.

Hugs, Ax
