Happy Holidays


I am getting a real good start on completing all my Christmas cards.  Here is one I made using stamps from "Tweet Winter Wishes" by Our Craft Lounge.  I created a scene using the snowman, the fence with the birds, and the smallest snowflake from this set.  The pine tree is from Rubber Stampede.

The images are clear rubber stamps so they are very easy to create a scene with.  I first stamped the snowman then the fence.  The images were colored with Copic markers.  I used Sahara Sand to stamp the snowflakes.  I usually use black ink but like the lighter look using this ink.  I used one of the long rectangle Nestabilities to cut out the image.  The SU greeting was stamped on white CS and a ticket punch used on each corner.  Both pieces were then attached to some aqua colored shiny cardstock that matches the aqua in the background paper.  The tree was stamped in black ink and colored with Copic markers then cut out.  It was mounted using dimensionals.  Polar White Flower Soft was added to the scene then some aqua rhinestone completed the card.

Have you started your Christmas cards yet?

Selma,

How did I know it would be a snowman card? You still love your snowmen don't you. This is such a cute card, and some very lucky person will receive it for Christmas I bet.

Great Job.
