Feature a snowman...or use the colors Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze and Basic Gray....or both. After searching through my sets, I found one snowman in last years Jolly Old Saint Nick set. Can you believe this is the only snowman stamp I have???
I also had the bright idea to use window sheets with the card. It is difficult to tell in this picture but here is what I did!
- I made the card as usual, using Baja Breeze as my card base, and layered with some retired Blushing Bride patterns paper. I colored the snowman with blender pens and added the sentiment.
- I cut and scored a medium window sheet to the same size as the card (8 1/2 by 5 1/2).
- On the front of the window sheet card, I stamped the snowflakes from the set with Versamark, then added heat and stick powder and dazzling diamonds. This is the first time I have used that powder! What took me so long?? lol
- To attach the window sheet card to the card base, I punched two holes in the fold of the card and threaded silver twine and some clear tinsel twine (also from last year), tied a bow and added a few bells.
With this bow, won't fit very well in an envelope!
Hope you are well and not fighting the cold that I am ! cough cough cough!
