Christmas Card Advent Calendar #5 – Snowman Espresso 1 card

Today's #5 Advent card features yet another clip art set (pre-colored topper) from Digi Web Studio. It's from Cheryl Seslar's Snowman Espresso 1 (retired).

Paper is by the German company Folia – Motifblock Christmas. I like their paper packs and use them quite a bit. They're large in size – 24 x 34 cm – and of heavy stock. I added my own Joyeux Noël sentiment to the coffee cup, just don't ask me the font as I failed to note it. 

Embellishments are a simple wooden snowflake and button. If you're just joining me, you can see #1, #2#3 and #4 by clicking on each number.

  1. So cute. I'd like a cup of hot tea or cocoa now in that pretty cup, though Frosty may regret hugging it :)

  2. Ohhhh! Que c'est beau!!! Dans mes couleurs préférées !! Très beau ce bonhomme de neige!!

  3. You did an amazing job of matching the backing papers to the pre-coloured image...not as easy as some may think :) Thank you for sharing with us at Dream Valley Challenge XXX

  4. As usual, with a signature technique, your layering makes this card! You can use a topper and make it a really special card with all the layers and texture - and you do!

  5. What an adorable card!! I love that snowflake, I haven't seen those. You did a really great job with the patterned papers. That's something I have a hard time with, picking papers that blend well together but still stand out on their own... Nice work!! Thanks for sharing it with us over at the Always Fun Challenges blog.
