A Year of ATCs? - Day 352

This is my Day 352 of 'My Year of ATCs?'

Day 18 of our advent calendars...

 and Day 18 of my set of Advent ATCs.

Today my theme is snowmen - our daughter came up for the weekend and brought her Christmas craft - tiny snowmen to hang on our Christmas trees, made with wooden beads and pyrography.

I love it when I get out all my Christmas decorations - I have things made by my family from so many years!! Sophie stitched this in '99 when we were living in Melbourne, Australia.

But then yesterday we went to my niece Caroline's drop-in and she had made a set of snowmen for each of us...

But to get back to my ATC...

Base: green card.
First layer: scraps of Christmas DP and ribbon.
Embellishments: 18 cut with Big Squeeze in green. 
Image: Precoloured Imagine That! Digistamps  Snowman with Tree Hat fussy cut. 

I love this image - so I also made a card using it and the sentiment that comes with it.

The card uses much the same as the ATC except I used stitched dies to cut out the elements.

I will link this to the Imagine That! Digistamps December Creative Playground Link Up

Happy Crafting!
