All stitched up.

I have followed the sketch on Try stamping on Tuesday
or at least I have taken my own slant on it.

I am a collector of unused envelopes and wanted to make a card to fit a particular one
that is why it is this shape and colour.
So I stepped away from the usual Christmas colours of red and green
and hunted out my Hero Arts snowman.

The corner is a Sizzix die.  I have faux stitched all around with tombow 991
and sponged with Dessert Sand.
Finished it off with 3 shiny snowflakes and 3 tiny jewels and
have mounted all with 1mm foam so that it is envelope friendly.

Am entering this in:

Try stamping on Tuesday - Sketch
CHNC - Stitching
CHNC 2 - Anything goes

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.
