Hello!  It’s the first Saturday in February, and that means it’s time for a new sketch challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  April, our challenge hostess, has come up with a rather simple one that should be easy for most people.  Although she’s used a tree on the sketch, any festive shape can be used.

I’ve decided to go wintry rather than specifically Christmassy, so I’ve used one of my favorite snowman images in place of the tree element.  Some cute snowman patterned paper fills in the vertical strip element.  Although I adore this snowman print, I don’t use it too often because it’s difficult matching colors to it.  But I think I came pretty close, and I guess a little contrast isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  I’ve used some shims of scrap cardstock behind the snowman to give him a little bit of dimension off the background of the card.

  1. I think your jolly snowman is just fab! Love the clean, crisp simplicity of your card. Great work. xxx

  2. Love your fun snowman card. You’re right, that backing paper is cute.
    Ha! Think I must have subconsciously been influenced by your image on the second card I made with this sketch. Thanks for the inspiration.
