Snowfun in the Garden

Today I have made a Christmas card and a calender.

First we will have the Christmas card:

An embossed panel was cut from a Me to You card blank and snowflake glitter vellum layered over the top. The robins on holly image was stamped onto white cardstock using black ink. This image came with Creative Stamping magazine. The image was coloured using the Hues set of promarkers. To the right side were added a snowflake, stamped greeting and a bow to finish.

This card is based on Sketch#49 from sketch and stash.

Now here is the calendar:
I took a blue base card and folded it into an easel card, adding green gingham patterned paper to the base. I added a foiled topper that came with DoCrafts magazine and a 3D watering can sticker. To the top I added some small diamantes. To hold the easel two plant pots were added and then the calendar tab finished the design off.
This is being entered into:
