Snowman Couple Christmas Card

Most of the time I don't even notice the adverts on TV but last Christmas I totally fell in love with the John Lewis one. It's just adorable (for any readers who are not in the UK, or who just didn't see it, it can be watched here on YouTube) and I never get fed up of watching it.

So when I got the Clarity Snowman stamp I just had to create my own snowy couple. This is another thing that the Splodge Mat has made easier. You stamp straight onto the mat and then put the card on that to pick up the ink. This leaves you with the opposite version of the stamp and you can then position the normal one next to it. I use second generation ink for this so that they end up a similar colour.

To create the frame around the edge I masked off the central panel with Post-its and brayered down from the top. This gives me a nice graduated colour. To co-ordinate with that I stamped the snowflake in 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation ink as I went down the page.

I wonder if he will be buying her a new scarf this Christmas?
