Simon Says - Christmas Photomontage Inspiration Challenge

Back again,
I have been busy finishing off last minute cards for Christmas and needed some inspiration. As soon as I saw Simon Says Stamp Inspiration Pic for their latest challenge I was ready to go:

I was inspired by the wintery look of these photos - now even though we live in sunny Australia where there is no snow at Christmas, being born in England, I still remember those lovely white Christmases I used to have as a child. Here is my card:

I used Spring Rain cardstock for my base and then die cut some squares from snowflake paper which were then matted on some Stampers Select White card. I stamped my sentiment from Holiday Button Bits in Night of Navy ink and then cut this into a banner. My image from Holiday Button Bits was stamped twice, coloured with copics and then the snowman's head was cut from the second piece and adhered on top of my button. I used some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to create the snow and also finish off his hat. This was then die cut with a circle nestie and matted on some blue card die cut using my Blossom 3 die. To finish off the front, some white ribbon was adhered and then my image layered on top of this.

On the inside, I used another sentiment from Holiday Button Bits and then finished off with some more DP layered on a scalloped cardstock strip.

Just a couple of Christmas cards to go and then I am finished for the year!!
