Christmas in July Challege at Platypus Creek Digitals

Christmas in July...already thinking about Christmas cards here in July which is actually five months away.  Here is a card I created for the DT presentation over at Platypus Creek Digitals...


Name of this digital image is Hannah's Snowman, and is a cute image.  I open the jpeg file into my Silhouette Studio DE, traced and print and cut the image.  The blue and white polka dot background is a scrapbook page I downloaded from a website, and I used a piece of white cardstock with the top edge torn with a decorative edge ruler to hopefully give it a look of a snowbank.  

The puppy dog was stamped with a acrylic stamp I had on had along with the sentiment - they're from the same set.  I colored the hat, carrot nose, scarf and arms with Copic markers.  The dog and scarf is colored with Stampin Up markers.

I added some clear gemstones as snow flakes on the blue background.  

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me, and hugs to all.
