Sending Christmas Cheer






Today's card was created for both the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and The Paper Players challenges. To create my card I started by embossing a piece of white cardstock using a random dot Stampin' UP embossing folder. I adhered that panel directly onto my white card base. I then stamped the adorable little snowman from the My Favorite Things Happy Heart Snowman stamp set onto some Copic-friendly cardstock, colored him using my alcohol markers, and then fussy cut him out. I die cut a snow bank using some more white cardstock and the stitched edge die from the Simon Says Stamp Drifting Stitches Border die set. I stamped the sentiment from the My Favorite Things Cheerful Christmas Greetings stamp set directly onto the snow bank using some Versafine onyx black ink for a nice crisp look. I went all around the edges of my snowman image with my dual edge Memento tuxedo black marker and adhered him to the snow drift using some snail adhesive. Once attached I popped the entire panel up off of the card using some 3M foam tape for some nice dimension. Some clear Wink of Stella on the heart, hat, and scarf finished this card off nicely. I hope you like it and thank you for visiting my blog today!
