Hello again! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
For my card today I am still working with snowmen, but a birthday card this time. I've had this cute image stamped for sometime and thought he deserved to find a home on a card. He is so cute-and that single snowflake! You would never see just one around here! We really got dumped on last week, so we now have a very adequate snowcover for the gardens. Hopefully the cold weather before we got all this snow didn't damage too many of my perennials. This would serve equally well as a Valentine with all the sweet candy and hearts.
This card I will enter in 'The House that Stamps Built' Designers choice challenge-Sweet Treats. I will also enter this in the 'Cards in Envy' challenge-Snowbuddy Like You'; the 'Creative Knockouts' challenge-Tag, Your it-use a tag; and the 'Seize the Birthday' challenge-coloring.
I stamped the image (Stampendous Jolly Snowman) with Versa-Mark ink and used black embossing powder and heat set (don't know which powder-I stamped that image a looooong time ago:). I colored the hat and heart with Momento markers. I cut it out with "Spellbinders Mega Rectangles and sponged SU Island Indigo ink while it was still in the die. I mounted the image on a piece of Stampin-up designer paper (?pack?). I then mounted that on the piece of the reverse of the blue heart DP-with all that yummy candy (sweet treats). I mounted that onto a piece of old olive cardstock. I stamped the sentiment (Stampendous) on a scrap of orange cardstock and cut it out with the SU small tag punch, them attached that to the snowman layer with a brad.
I like this one, do you? He looks so grateful for that snowflake, don't you think?
Please, I'd love you to leave a comment =).
