Art Impressions 'Snowman and Penguin'

 Hi all :-) I recently bought a gorgeous Snowman and Penguin set from Art Impressions and I love that they have a front and back image,, super cute, and perfect for aperture cards :-)

I am  keeping my Christmas cards CAS for easy posting. Most of my cards have to go airmail so I am trying to keep them on the lowest postage rate  ;-)

I made 2 cards using both images 

First up is this cute Snowman :-) Isn't he adorable !! I used a stencil and some embossing paste to create a textured snowfall.

 to add some extra interest I used some patterned paper on the inside.

and here's his bum ,,, wiggle wiggle :-)

 next up uses the adorable Penguin,,, 
btw, have you seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert ? 

 awww :-)

The snowflakes are some new Simon's exclusive sequins that were in the November Kit, love these !

Thanks for looking :-)

Love them both. I've had my eye on those and now you have me wanting. CAS is the way to go if you have to airmail or do more than 5. Great idea!

The snowflakes add just the right amount of sparkle and your sentiment really pops! Thank you for playing along with us at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' this month with these delightful cards.
