Christmas Cards 2019

This year I have decided that I am going to be very organised (I wonder how long that will last) and make Christmas cards throughout the year instead of frantically making them at the end of November.

To make this easier I have decided that I will make them in batches of three, with the same image and layout but different papers/colours.

For my first set of cards I have used a Snowman image from Di's Digis, which I have coloured with promarkers. The papers are Winter Wonderland from Crafter's Companion. I have used  a number of dies including Lil'inkers Stitched Squares, La La Land Stitched Elements and Poppystamps Stitched Buttons.

I have followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday


I am entering the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday Week 546
ABC Christmas A is for Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland It's Snowtime
Christmas Craft Is All Year Round Let it Snow
Merry Little Christmas Anything Christmas Goes
PolkadoodlesAnything Goes
Di's Digi Snow Much Fun
I Love Promarkers Anything Goes
Passion for Promarkers Dies and Punches
