Merry Christmas Card

Hello everyone :-D 

This morning I made this Merry Christmas Card.

For a card layout I used sketch from Meljen's Designs Design Team and Challenge Blog. This is a sketch designed by Amy Almeida, for current challenge #232. 

I printed two Meljen's Designs 'Bundled Little Snowboy' digital images on white card stock paper, colored elements on both images with my colored pencils, white pencil, aquarell colored pencils and black fine liner. After that I fussy cut elements from one image and glued them on the other image, which I fussy cut too. I added a transparent glossy varnish on snowman´s eyes, cheeks, nose and buttons to create glossy accent and pearls around the snowman with pearl-maker.

After I glued down all layers and image, I added three double sided adhesive star shaped foams to the card and sprinkled them with a fine glitter (red and green).

Card dimensions are 13,3 cm x 13,3 cm (5 1/4" x 5 1/4").
