Good morning and happy Monday. I was able to enjoy a nice day yesterday and dinner with my daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren (who are adults) last night. We are still eating outside and it was pleasant. Today, the pleasant has chilled down a bit and gotten somewhat windy out. I think we'll be back to warming up by the middle of the week.
I have a card to share with you today. I made this for the Challenge Your Stash group over on Splitcoast Stampers. The idea is to just use items from your stash to make the card to go along with the theme of the month. This month's theme came from Danielle and it is to make a fun fold card- any fold as long as it's not just folded in half- and include the color red.
The image and sentiment inside come from an unidentified stamp set. I believe it came in a stamping/papercraft magazine, but I wasn't able to find the correct one. The fold is made with a 5 1/2" x 12" piece of cardstock, scored at 2", 4", 8", and 10". There is designer paper on the inside and outside of the two folded sides. The snowman was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Xpress It Blending Card. It was then matted on a 2" square piece of red cardstock and then mounted on a piece of SU Whisper White. The image was colored with the Copic Markers - G05, R46, YR04, W0, and W7. I used some white liquid applique on his hat for the fur trim. The designer paper is from Stampin Up This Christmas collection. The snowflake die on the right side is from Memory Box - Frosty Border and then I finished off the card with some glitter red bling dots. I would love to have more time to play in my craft room.
Maggie, this is adorable! Love that little snowman!ReplyDelete
Oh, that snowman is cute! I love the die, too. Believe I have that one. Glad to hear it has warmed up for you. The wind chill makes all the difference and is my nemesis here. So sorry I'm late to visit. Busy days at my house!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness this is an awesome card. Love the layout and the image is absolutely adorable.ReplyDelete
