QKR Caroling Snowman

Hi Everyone, my card today is one of two DT cards today, I hope you can visit both, this is for  

We will select two winners each of the weeks 
1 using QKR Stampede  or Eureka Stamps image
 and 1 using any image!

Anything Goes every 1st & 15th of the month

A Christmas card was my choice of DT card today, with the fun snowman family singing. Aren't they a happy bunch? I printed and cut the background and the figures with my Cameo. I painted the glow from the lamp first with DI's. Then coloured the background with Distress Oxides, using this scheme. However, after it was finished I realised the colours in the background were the wrong way around, I don't care though, as I think it's a happy card.

The background was spritzed with water and dried with a paper towel, I then dry embossed with a snow background folder. I added a sparkle pen to the snowflakes, but I'm afraid the camera didn't pick it up. 

The family were then coloured using the same scheme. The Carolers with 4 layers were then attached to the background. A touch of my usual glaze for the noses. Then added a die, (I have lost the label), was cut 3 times and added to the corner.
