Good morning! Welcome to a new week! I've got a fun snowy card today using my new My Favorite Things stamps and dies!
Ok, I only noticed after I edited my pictures that one of my little pom-pom snowballs fell off, but I don't want to photograph the card again, so just pretend that the snowman on the right has an extra snowball on the bottom of his snowball pyramid pile :)
To start this off I cut my Neenah cardstock to 4 1/4" x 11" and then scored it at 5 1/2" to make my card. I stamped, colored with copics, and cut out my snowmen. (the snowman on the left in the pink coat was originally holding a stick with marshmallows but I just cut it off and then colored over the part left still showing on his hand with my white uniball signo gel pen. I stamped the Snowfall background stamp on the card front in Versamark Ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I die cut the snow drift from masking paper and then masked off my snow and used my ink blending tool to ink up the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I die cut the wonky window in the front of the card and adhered the snowmen to the card. I stamped the sketched chevron background on a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of Neenah cardstock and then adhered that to the inside of my card. I closed the card and stamped my sentiment on the inside, centered in my wonky window. I threaded some snowball pom-poms on silver thread and strung them across the back of the window inside the card and then finished off the card by gluing some snowballs to the front.
Here's a shot of the card without the inside showing:
We had a pretty good weekend around here, we got a lot of our Christmas shopping done and I picked up our wrapping paper so that's exciting. (I don't actually decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving but i try and do as much planning and prep work as possible in November!) This week I'm (hopefully) using my Papertrey Ink Holiday Pin-ups kit to make an advent calendar for Bree (which hopefully she'll love but the more likely scenario is that it will cause a meltdown everyday when she can't open all of the bags at once...)
Anyways, that's enough for today, have a fantastic day and I'll be back tomorrow!
