One would think that when you are a memeber of a monthly Christmas card challenge group, a member of a monthly Magnolia Christmas Card Hop group, a Winter Lover, a lover of all things BLUE, and a card maker, you would have your Christmas cards done WAY before the week of Christmas, right? WRONG! I haven't finished making my cards AND I haven't mailed one yet!
Maybe it's because I procrastinate, maybe it's because I can't find my address book, or maybe it's because I hand make specialized cards for each and every person in my life...Hmmm...I think it's all three. Either way, I'm late once again!
So I sit here this weekend trying to finish up on all my cards. Here's another one I created for a special person in my life. I hope they enjoy it!
I first inked up the Basic Grey embossing folder with Brown Versacolor ink. Then embossed in my Cuttlebug. After that, I distressed the edges a bit with some distressing ink to make the embossing really shine! I stamped the dotted circle from the Woodware set called Tiny Frames and then the tiny snowman from one image in the set A WINTER'S DAY. Next, I had to use my white pen to color the snowman. After he was dry, I over-stamped the snowman again to darken the black lines. I punched the stamped circle out, adhered it to the snowflake with a sticky dot, and added some sparkly ribbon to the snowflake. Quick and simple! Sure, it'll take one and a half stamps to mail but, I love bumpy cards! PS...I found the snowflake ornaments (in silver and white) at Michael's.
**A little reminder...My free Woodware Sentiment Set Challenge will end on Monday so make sure you post a card...Just do something fun-and different (alter) with a Snowman image!!!
