Snowmen plaque


This is my first LOTV design collective inspiration post this month and I chose to make a Christmas plaque. The MDF heart is from MDF Craft Supplies, a great company with free postage. The paper is form my odds and ends pile. I used the TH snowflake die and matching embossing folder and added lots of glitter. The snowmen are part of the recent LOTV trio set and I added Stickles to the Copic coloured hat and pearl dots. A few enamel stars to finish.

There is a coffee and craft shop which opened about six months ago, just a few miles away and we often go there for coffee or a light lunch. They sell handmade goods by local crafters and I have some of my gifts in there. They sold 3 things in the first 5 days so I am hoping they will sell several things coming up to Christmas. This plaque is in there for sale.
