Snowy Cuddles


Today I am posting a cute Christmas card created with a stamp from Stampavie.  The name of this one is "Snowy Cuddles" by Penny Johnson.  Have you been to Joan's Gardens to see all the new Sarah Kay and Magnolia stamps she just received?   She also has some of the new Martha Stewart Christmas border punches.

The background paper used is from the DCWV "Winter Wonder" stack.  This was a 12x12" paper pack so I used only one corner from the page.  I thought the little bird on the branch would be cute with the stamped image I wanted to add.   The verse is from the JustRite "Christmas Nested Sentiments".  It was black embossed directly onto the design paper.   I also stamped the "snowpeople" image directly onto the design paper then again onto white card stock.  The images on the card stock were colored using Copic markers.  I trimmed closely around the design and attached it over the image stamped on the design paper.   The reason I did this is because I  didn't want to lose some of the little marks  around the snow people after they were cut out.    A purple bow was added to complete the card. 

Here is the link to check out all the new stamps and punches at Joan's Gardens.

It is hard to believe it is already Halloween.  We are wondering if we are going to have many little Trick or Treat goblins coming around this evening because we have been having rainy weather most of the week.  We always love to see all the cute costumes.

 Have a Happy Halloween.

This is super adorable... the little blue bird is the perfect touch! Yep it's cold here too! We've had 6 trick or treaters and 7 gkids... that's a pretty good turn out for us!

Your card is so sweet! And I love the technique of stamping the image twice to save the detail marks.
Thanks for sharing! :o)
