Snowman Card Swap--3 sheet wonder!

Last month I did a snowman/snowflake card swap. Here are the cards I created for that swap!

I don't normally do swaps because it can get rather pricy for the postage... you have to pay to ship the swaps and pay to include the return postage. Being on such a limited income limits me to the amount of swaps I can do per month. But, I REALLY wanted to get in on this swap. These are the cards I created for this swap. I made 6 of the same cards, sent out 5 (kept the 6th one for myself) and got 5 in return. I hope you like the ones I made!

I did a "3 sheet wonder" card set. I got 6 cards out of tthree 12x12 sheets of paper (this included 2 sheets of
textured plain colored cardstock and 1 sheet of deco paper).  The 3 sheet wonder card set I did included 6 mats from 1 sheet of plain colored textured cardstock, 6 deco paper mats and 6 smaller mats from the 2nd sheet of plain colored textured cardstock (for behind the image).

Here is a closeup of the card...

this card is colored with copics and zig brushables and then I adorned the images with star dust stickles.
I colored the hats and scarves with copics and then I colored the snow with a zig brushable.
I matted the image on textured cardstock and then matted that on top of a piece of snowflaked and flourished paper from the GCD studio's Sophisticated Frost paper pad.
I am not sure what company makes the stamp that I've used... it is a REALLY old stamp, I've had it for about 6 years or so now and I've not even used it a handful of times. But I'm glad I pulled this one out of the box because I really like how the cards turned out. :) I even ended up stamping up about 40 more of these images to make more christmas cards to send to friends and family. :)

Thanks for looking!
Keep on Scrappin' and please, be kind to one another!
