Kristmas Karaoke

     OK, silly title for the post but it's the day for "K" in the 30 days of Holidays over at Beccy's Place and when I saw these three snowmen in her shop, singing from their hearts, they looked just like a Karaoke group and that was perfect for a "K" !  Yes, I took some liberties with the spelling of Kristmas but I needed to stick with the "K"s.  :-D

I based my card on the sketch at Die Cuttin' Divas.

     Image is Kolored with ProMarkers, trimmed into a square, and Korner punched (Fiskars.)  The background was made by die Kutting gray-blue CS (Memory Box die.)  Once the piece was Kut, I had a "frame" with a more-or-less 'oval' opening but the opening wasn't large enough to let the image show through.  So, I Kut the frame into 2 pieces, patched it with a strip of that same CS, and added it to the card front.

     I used a glitter gel pen to Kolor some of the open spaces in the frame making them look like sparkly snowflakes.  I also used it to cast shadows on the snow beneath the snowmen.  Then I added the red ribbon and layered on the image.  I used one of my hand sewn bows which had been white but I dyed it with a marker.  (Don't you just hate the way I turned all those hard "C"s into "K"s?  lol)

I got quite a chuckle from your post NC, your liberal use of the letter "K" is funny. You've definitely nailed the brief!
The die cut background is fabulous, it's adds lots of texture and interest to your card, and the colour of the card stock is perfect for a snow scene. I also like the red snowflake ribbon you added, the pop of colour is great.

This is fabulous NanaConnie. I had trouble thinking about K until I Googled it and came up with a much less inventive K then you did. Such a cute card and I love your interpretation for the letter K.
