Tall slim Christmas cards that feature two different snowman

I decided to make some Christmas cards for my daughter while I was at it.  I have enjoyed making individual cards for birthdays but decided it would be more efficient to make all the Christmas cards using the same sketch.  I started with purple cardstock which coordinated with the handmade purple paste paper I dug out of my stash. I added my decorative paper to my short card fronts and then added a length of double sided tape on the very bottom edge and then added a strip of white which was cut on the top edge using a wavy blade cutter and which I had embellished with several lines of texture using my tracing wheel.  I am loving my tracing wheel!!  The images are digitals from Dearie Dolls which I laser printed, trimmed and then watercoloured.  I cut several strips of silver decorative paper, border punched the edges and added my images then scored a few lines to define the bottom edge.  I tied on a piece of colourful fiber that coordinated then glued this large element to my card front.  I embellished the centers of the snowflakes with clear rhinestones. 
I made the next set exactly the same way using a different snow man from Dearie Dolls and another piece of paste paper from my stash.  Really happy with how these turned out!! Therese
