I don't usually make cute cards, but I do have this darling Penny Black set called holly-jolly & the Penny Black Saturday November challenge is to make a cute Christmas card.  I used various markers to color the images & added Glossy Accents to the noses.  The little white embossed snowflakes in the background are from another Penny Black set called crystalline & I let a little of the powder go onto the characters for a touch of snow.  The wintry ground is made by gluing on Stampendous! shaved ice, so I'm also entering their November challenge.  The navy frame is Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles--double layer for a little extra stiffness so I could mount it over the image with foam tape.  The card front is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I have to admit it was fun to make something completely different.  Hope you like it & thanks for leaving me a comment.


  1. Hello Greta.
    I rarely make cute cards also, but more have been made this year because of Precious, and I am beginning to have a penchant for them, I am also rather fond of PB Hedgies. So for me this is a darling of a card and I love the design also.

  2. An adorable Christmas card, Greta! Although you rarely make one and this turned out well. Love the shaved ice effect on the card!

  3. Just gorgeous Greta. It is really the cutest. Love everything about it.

  4. I love the look of the shaved ice, Greta - makes the card so special! That image is adorable and I love the way you've framed it in your design! Fun card!
