Framed snowman

This little snow-fellow is cheerily waving from the comfort of his frame! The frame is a cardboard slide mount - I think it's the very last one I have left from the first QVC kit I ever bought, so it must be about 22 years old. I covered it in dark blue trellis pattern paper which, like the fir tree backing paper, came from a Poundland pad. I used a stitched square die for the background, going over the lines with a fineliner to produce faux stitching and added a stamped sentiment. Before assembling the card, I used fine silver thread to attach a snowflake charm to the frame.

I am sharing this with
