You Warm My Heart

I have a simple Christmas/Holiday card to share today.  :)  It is really simple but it took me a long time to finish it.


For this card, I started with the products I wanted to use:  the snowman stamp set and the Stitched Hillside border die from Lawn Fawn.  Naturally I would love to create a scene.  So I first created the snowbanks with the die, then added the snowman on it.  The snowman told me in a very sad voice that he was very lonely so I wanted to add some more to it.  I tried various things - trees next to him, a bird, another snowman but nothing seem to cheer him up.

Finally I  tried to add some snowflakes in the background and bingo!  That's exactly what the snowman wanted.  With the snowflakes the card looks a lot more lively.  The snowman is happy now!

I could have never imagined that this card could take me so long to finish.  It was a fun process nonetheless and I hope the card recipient will like it.
