Christmas Card Challenge

Sorry I've been AWOL again but today I was sick and I have no excuse for yesterday other than the fact that I haven't had a lot of time to stamp anything.
On another note, I joined a challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. We make 10 Christmas cards each month and then post them on the site. By the time Christmas gets here again I'll have 110 cards already made and ready to go. Now I don't send out that many cards each year, so I can either save them for another year or sell the extra ones. Anyway, I'll be prepared.
This is the card I did for February. I used Garden Green card stock for the base card. Then I ran a piece of Shimmery White card stock through my Big Shot with a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to make the snowflakes (gotta love those Cuttlebugs). I turned the embossed piece over and brayered over the back side with Garden Green ink. I stamped my images on the Shimmery White and cut them out with the large Tag Punch. The top of the tags were done with the Word Window Punch and attached with a white brad. I colored the snowman tag with Gel Pens. This is a little more whimsical then what I usually make for Christmas but it was a lot of fun.
Stay tuned to see what I come up with for March. Thanks for looking.
