Handicrafts by Kate Perry and other ramblings

It may have hit 40º here yesterday, but today I am back in the snow making a Christmas card featuring scarves and mittens! I have kept it fairly simple with a printed backing paper and several SeeD's stamps. I stamped these with Memento tuxedo black and coloured them with my Copic markers. The snowman's frame was made with a conbination of Nellie Snedden and Nestability circle dies. A little bit of stickles sparkle was all it needed to finish it off.

I made this card for:

Bah! Humbug! Challenge 24: Scarves and Mittens.

Crafty Ann's Challenge 43: Christmas in June.
Just add ink 72: Just add some Colouring.

Very good, I see you have put your new die to good use.Does making snowy cards make you feel cooler or the thought of scarves and mittens make you feel hotter?!! Jean x

Lovely card, weird to make those when it's 40 degrees outside. I usually start in octobre with my Xmascards.
I do love this stampset, great mittens!

Fantastic card and all the more impressive when your ambient temperatures are the opposite! Thank you for sharing it with us at Crafty Ann's

Have to admire your ability to combine different stamp sets and create something that fits together perfectly. Don't suppose you have much call for scarves and mittens where you are ... but your snowman has a spare set just in case lol! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
