A Cheerful Snowman

Time to throw in a Christmas Card for the 2022 stash!

Today I'm sharing this frosty fellow from the Paper Shelter done in monochromatic shades of dark aqua. 

The image, 'A Cheerful Snowman', comes with the black/white image, a fully colored image and also a matching paper both with and without the image.  What an assortment!

But for this card, I used the black/white image only.  I selected Copic markers BG70, BG72, BG75 and the coordinating solid and patterned papers.  I also used N8  for his nose and buttons.  As you know in Copic coloring, nothing is truly white.  If you could look closely at the card itself, you could see the snowman has a hint of Copic B60 for the shadowed areas.

I used Quickutz Nesting Frame 7 for the solid matting and the sentiment 'Merry Christmas Tree' was in my bits & pieces file.  After securing each layer as shown in the photo, I added the twine around the top fold and completed the card with a tiny Christmas Tree charm.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.

  7. As a new MLCC design team member starting in July, I thought I'd get in the routine for commenting, so that's why I'm here for MLCC. I love the non-traditional deep aqua/teal for a Christmas card! The image is charming. Thanks for sharing here at MLCC! --Becca S
