Christmas Magic, Snowman Christmas Card

Oh my gosh!  This card was like a train wreck happening before my very eyes!!!

I didn't have a clue as to where I was going with this card.  All I knew was that I wanted to use that cute snowman from the "Christmas Magic" set.  A set I bought because of the snowman.  A set I didn't need.  And a set I won't have much time to play with at all.  Note to self:  "No more than 3 Christmas sets next year!!!"  I always say I'm not going to buy a bunch of sets and then I do it anyway. Hopefully next year the Holiday Catalog won't be so painful!!! LOL

Anyway.  I had bought the pack of "Seasonal Decorative Masks".  I'm finding it a mistake too.  But I thought I should try to play with it.  I used the circles, a piece of Emerald Envy card stock and Emerald Envy ink. I sponged the ink on the mask and got this dotted background.  I thought it would be quicker than using the "Falling Snow" texture folder.  It's not. Plus now I have to clean the mask!  

Okay, moving on.  I stamped, colored and cut out the snowman. I layered him in Emerald Envy and Real Red card stock.  

I used some fun decorative paper as a side layer for some contrast.  I used the "Merry Wishes" from the "Christmas Magic" set.  

They all can't be winners!!!  Tomorrow I will have something more fun for you!!!

Thank you for hanging in there today,

Love the snowman card, I bought this set did you get the fancy edges on the ovals that the snowman is mounted on? I will check back sometime soon to see how...

I used the Layering Oval Framelits to do the scallops
