I stamped the image on generic white. Colored just the cheeks with chalk. Really really old chalk! I used Not Quite Navy ink/SU. Then cut the snowflakes using generic white. I was going to stamp the snowflakes but I can't bend due to my surgery and I could not reach the stamps! I did use a Spica clear pen on the beard, eyebrows to add just a bit of shine. The camera did not pick it up. It's really subtle. Then added the SU ribbon from a couple of years ago. Added the Verve sentiment. I hope its not overdone for CAS. It just really needed the snowflakes.
Well this is the first card I got to make in 6 weeks. I attempted it since it was CAS. Can't wait to get back to normal to create all the time again!
Thanks for looking

What a beautiful Christmas card! Love those added snowflakes even though you didn't get to stamp them, and the pretty silvery threads are a perfect touch~ Hope you feel better real soon and can bend to get all your supplies.
