Icy hugs

Hello lovely people,

I had a wonderful day at the Cheltenham beer festival yesterday.  Many fine beers were sampled including a Gin beer made with gin botanicals instead of hops...it was really rather nice!

Today I am having a relaxing potter about in my craft room and am sharing a card to showcase some LOTV products as part of the Design Collective.

The sun is shining beautifully today so my card seems a little incongruous, but I am pleased to have made my second Christmas card!


The hardest part about this design was choosing which of the gorgeously cute new LOTV Christmas stamps to use!
This little pair are adorable don't you think?


I try to stay away from the more 3D embellishments for Christmas cards so that they don't cost loads to post, so snowflake dies are my absolute must have to add detail!  Ok, they are less flat if you start adding pearl centres but they look so pretty!



Card recipe;
Tag: Christmas sentiment tags - LOTV
Dies: Large frames frilly #10 - Go Kreate, Small snowflake die set - Impression Obsession, Lovely fence - Magnolia Doohickeys

Copic colours;

Green: G24/85/29
