Happy Monday peeps! Wow, fall is upon us for sure here in PA! It was a chilly but beautiful weekend! I am getting excited for the upcoming holidays! Here is Lesley’s Merry Monday challenge for us today:
Now, I know that the colors in this challenge are cool hues, but the only criteria is to use a snowman on one’s card! So I went in a different direction…. here is my take on the challenge:
I haven’t done a card with lots of detail like this for a while, and it was so fun! I used the fall sketch from Create with Connie & Mary:
as well as the color challenge 207 from JUGS:
I had a card already embossed with the snowflake embossing, so I used that as my base, adding the layers and my stamped image. I wheeled the red piece with a retired snowflake wheel, and brayered some Crumb Cake ink on the polka dot paper so it wouldn’t seem so starkly white. Of course my little snowman was stamped, colored, cut out and popped up for dimension:
I gave him a couple extra snowballs to juggle, and he is even standing on a little snowy hill! I punched out a sentiment from the same set with my Modern Label punch:
And I added a little stamping on the inside as well:
Snowmen are so much fun for Christmas cards, so I hope you will play along with us at Merry Monday! Check out Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper, for all the details as well as the lovely designs from the others!
Cassidy knew just what to do with this spatula….even though the gingersnaps were a wee bit too “snappy” for her taste! Notice the partially-eaten one on the table!
