Today is a regular day off work and I decided to have such a Scramble. My theme - to use an embossed background I just received from my friend Heather. It's a beautiful snowflake background on a soft blue card stock - thanks again, Heather! I just received an order from Hero Arts which included three of their Special Bundles. The one I used today contained a clear stamp set CL800 Frosty Wishes and a die set DI105 Snowman Die Cuts. I just love this darling snowman and the dies made it super simple to put together. This card was made in less than an hour. I must admit the Stickles on my snowbank weren't totally dry when I took the photograph... And if I was Scrambling for real, I would've had a problem because my photo software wasn't cooperating!
Here's my card:
I stamped the snowman on Copic paper and added a light border inside the black stamping using Copic Marker B00. I stamped the scarf using Salty Ocean Distress Ink, then added some B00 over it. The Stickles on the snowbank photographed a bit pink, but it's really Diamond white. The holly embellishment is by Jolie.
Heather and I were trying to make 2 Christmas cards per month throughout the year so we wouldn't be so pressed and stressed come December. Well, I got behind immediately but managed to catch up a bit - I now have 14 cards made including this one - Woo Hoo! Just 4 more and I'll be caught up through September. How are you doing on your Christmas cards? Do you wait until a certain month or do you try to do a few at a time throughout the year? Whichever way you work - hope it's going well for you!
Thanks for stopping by!
