A strange method

Cette image vient de chez The Paper Shelter... Je l'ai trouvée tellement amusante que j'ai voulu qu'elle soit la vedette absolue de la carte, avec un fond blanc et des embellissements au minimum. Le fond est juste embossé à froid. L'image est coloriée aux promarkers et la neige sur la cheminée est couverte de stickles, le ballon de glossy accents, l'image entière surélevée avec de l'adhésif 3D. Deux petits grelots (qui font réellement du bruit) viennent compléter la carte avec un peu de ficelle.

This image from The Paper Shelter is so funny that I wanted it to be the star of the card, with a white background and minimal embellishment. The background is embossed (with an embossing folder I don't own, that paper was part of a swap...), the image is colored with promarkers, the snow on the chimney is covered in stickles and the balloon in glossy accents. Just a bit of baker's twine and two tiny bells finish off this simple card.
I would like to submit my card to the following challenges : Addicted To Stamps (anything goes), Sweet Stampin' Christmas (snowflakes -- on the embossed background), Inspiration Destination (anything goes), Paper Pretties (clean and simple), Whimsy Stamps (anything goes), Artbymiran (anything goes), Delicious Doodles (Christmas in October), Pattie's Creations (embossing), Sister Act (anything goes).
