HIMCR #180 - Freestyle - Anything but Christmas

HIMCR #180 - Anything but Christmas

I had already made a box card which was posted on 12-22 to send to my son and his wife for New Year's but with the size of the envelope and weight of all the goodies on it, the postage would have been $10.00. Mailing to Japan has more than tripled since his first trip there in 2003.
I did my very best to keep this card as simple and thin as I possibly could....well, I HAD to add an Action Wobble, I can imagine how much fun Miki will have with it.



 
Recipe:
Cardstock, I used 2 different blues and a white, was able to use up some more scraps again, HORRAYYY!!!
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Ribbon
Edge stamp - CTMH
Snowflakes
Jewels, pompom
"Sharing the Holidays" stamp set from Plum Purdy
Colored pencils
Adhesives
Action Wobble
Glossy Accents
Spellbinders Circle die - I used the largest circle
Distress Ink - Chipped Sapphire
 
I printed the sentiment with my printer.
 
After I stamped and colored my image I added some Glossy Accents to most of the snow areas and added a pompom to his hat then I cut the image out using the Spellbinders circle die.
