The Snowman

The charm of The Snowman just lasts and lasts, doesn't it? My grandchildren now love it just as much as their mummies did when it first appeared on our screens. Here is a card I have made using a design from the Crafters Companion Inspiration CD that came with last year's Christmas edition of the magazine - the CD contains a very generous sample of designs from the full Crafters Companion range of The Snowman and The Snowdog products.

The backing paper was a pull out sheet from a magazine a couple of years ago, and by using the whole sheet,  layered with navy, and embellishments from the sheet I printed from the CD, I've linked the back and front of the card to make it feel a bit more special.
