Let it snow? Well, not really - please! We've had some cold rainy days this week but at least no snow!!
Wk 4 of retirement and I'm having some fun with Merry Monday today - Kathy's challenge is to create a snowy Christmas card. I couldn't wait to try a card using a new-to-me snowman set by Avery Elle. Just love this darling image and I ordered the matching die too.
Here's my card:
Supplies: Stamps - Avery Elle's Be Jolly (snowman); Hero Arts DC164 Woodland Set by Lia (sentiment); Lawn Fawn Snow Day (row of trees); Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow. Matching dies to snowman and trees; Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle.
Inks - Memento Tuxedo Black; Tumbled Glass, Pine Needles & Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks. Paper - Neenah Solar White; Hero Arts Azure. Copic markers; Doodlebug enamel dots; Ranger Black Enamel Accents, Blue Icy Stickles; Viva Decor Ice white Pearl Pen
- Cut a white 3.5" x 4.75" panel.
- Stamped and clear embossed the sentiment in the lower right corner. Shaded it with Copic B00.
- Stamped the snowman image with its own "snowbank" directly on the card; shaded the snow.
- Stamped and white embossed the "falling snow". I shaded the "sky" portion with a bit of Distress Ink.
- Stamped the row of trees and the snowman on a scrap piece of white; then die cut each.
- Colored the snowman with Copics, added black Enamel Accents to the eyes and mouth, enamel dots over the stamped buttons and blue stickles on the hat.
- Adhered the row of trees directly onto the card, then popped the die cut snowman with foam tape over the stamped image on the card.
- Added pearl pen to the "snow".
- Matted the white panel with blue.
- Die cut a white stitched rectangle and adhered to a top fold A2 blue card.
- Adhered the matted snowman panel to the card.
