Brusho Snowmen!

Hi there!  I am back again with another Christmas card - Yay, another one for the box!


Now this really was a simple card to make! The absolutely gorgeous die is Let It Snow by Sizzix (used for the first time) and I cut it from a left over piece of card from one of my white scrap drawers. The background was originally an A4 sheet of card that had been given the Brusho treatment - I can't remember the colours I am afraid but the gold is actually Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder in Rich Gold. Luckily I had a piece left!  I cut the eyes and noses of the snowmen from little snippets of left over card and glued them in place - it would have been simpler just to colour the white pieces that were already cut with Promarkers but I didn't think of that!  I glued the die cut on the Brusho panel, glued that to my white card base and it was done!  I told you it was simple!  I absolutely love the white on the rich background and was so pleased how the card turned out!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

January 2017 Rudolph Days Challenge - Anything Christmas,
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Use Snippets - everything on this card is snippits!
Darnell's NBUS Challenge - My Never Before Used Schtuff is the fab die.

All awesome challenges!

Thank you so much for visiting me - I will be popping round Blogland tomorrow, I have visited a few lovely people today but have more to do!  Take care!  Christine xxx
