Dressed for Winter

I've been meaning to do this Crafty Templates Update all week - but the Time Thief stole in and pinched most of the week, yet again!
The Templates Set for November had a "dressed for Winter" feel, with lots of cute "Winter Pals" wearing their woolly hats and scarves to keep out the chill.  From these I chose the polar bear to make this card, and kept it really simple with a red, white and blue theme on a Kraft card base

Materials: Bazzill card in red, white blue and black, Tiny white button, Red and white Bakers Twine, Black brads, Black Enamel Accents
Bear Template, Spellbinders Holey Scalloped Circles Dies
Craft Robo for greeting and plain red circle

Next I made a shaped card using the cute Snowman Template

I thought the idea of a Garden Gnome wearing a Father Christmas suit was too cute not to use, so I made this card, giving the Santa Gnome a little flag to hold
Santa Gnome Template, Red, White and Black card, Paper from Simple Stories 6x6 Christmas pad, Bakers Twine, Stickles; silver, red and white, Flag (Nikki Savills), Sentiment home-made rub on

The November templates are fab - and fun too! I love that they so adaptable for not just Christmas projects but  for other winter-themed things too.
I've not used a Goodies Kit this month, but as usual Leo has put together a lovely collections of goodies to help inspire for these templates and for other crafting projects too.
You can find out all about Crafty Templates and the Crafty Goodies Kits HERE, and don't forget to check out the BLOG too!

Back to the Christmas card making for me - why am I so bad at getting them done?
