Here's another one of those very simple, came-together-easily Christmas cards that I like quite a bit. This snowman from Crafty Secrets is soooo sweet. I just noticed now as I'm posting this how well the background paper with the holly on it goes with the holly around the snowman. I'd like to say I planned that, but I didn't. I outlined the image with a gold leaf pen and added a rub-on sentiment. I then added a piece of gold paper which my friend Sarah sent me behind the image. I cut the holly paper with scalloped scissors for some added interest. With the strip of ribbon beside that I did try to pick up the gold and red of the card.

Ooohhh a vintage snowman - how cool! Beautiful papers to support this image - and isn't it great when something happens to a card that you only see afterwards!
