This is not usual for me but I have made a very early Christmas card this week. I was inspired by Katerina's sketch on Papertake Weekly. I have had these papers for some time and I think its the time to use them. Well, as you can see the above is the result. I am not sure if it feels too busy or not. What do you think?

- Cut a green paper from the Traditional Christmas pack as big as the card (or leave a little border if you wish). Cut a scalloped semi circle from red paper.
- Stamp and colour the image twice. Heat emboss the stars. Use the Zig 2 Way Glue to cover the white furry section of the coat and spread Snow powder on top. Heat emboss the sentiments and cut them as shown.
- Cut a small rectangle slightly bigger than the image and dry emboss it using the Cuttlebug machine. Ink the edges and the snowflakes.
- Assemble everything as shown adding a green ribbon to embellish the card.
