This week's JustRite Friday Challenge #029 is to work with this square sketch:
A strip of Not Quite Navy cs was embossed with the Cuttlebug and backed with a piece of More Mustard. To create the border across the bottom, five Martha Stewart snowflakes were punched and lined up from one edge to the other.
I needed to create my own greeting for the snowflake border. I used the new JustRite clear stamp block and added the letters I wanted from the JustRite "15pt Times New Roman" font set. I wanted to stamp "Let It Snow" on a very narrow piece of card stock to go across the top of my snowflakes. It was so easy to stamp on the narrow strip with the clear stamp block, because you can see exactly where to line it up. As you can see in the picture above, I placed a little design, included in this font set, at each end of the greeting to separate the repeated saying. I was thrilled at how easy it was to create the greeting I wanted on this narrow strip of card stock.
I used very non-traditional colors on my card, because I get tired of always using red and green. I am sure someone will love receiving this card next Christmas - how could you not LOVE that adorable snowman!
