Hello Everybody! Happy sunshine-y day to you all! It's a beautiful sunny fall day here in Chilliwack! Love it!
I'm back with a card I made for the JUGS challenge! I combined it with the Merry Monday challenge because I really wanted to use the Snow Much Fun stamp set, as it is severely underused over here, and I thought the JUGS colors were perfect for a sweet Christmas card! One of my girls' teachers will probably get this at Christmas time! Isn't it sweet?
I started with Naturals White CS as my card base, then layered Early Espresso and Red Glimmer Paper. For the focal panel I stamped the tall snowman from the Snow Much Fun set in Black StazOn on watercolour paper and distressed the edges. I stamped another snowman on a scrap of watercolour paper, coloured him in here and there using Early Espresso, Real Red and Crumb Cake (Kraft) ink for some shading. I cut him out, skipping his arms and the birdies and popped him with some dimensionals. He looks soooo cute in real. I'm sure when my girls see this card, they will both want to be the one giving this to their teacher! I'll probably have to make another! I finished the card off with some hanging flag banners made of Summer Smooches DSP and frayed Natural Cotton Ribbon (Cream), Early Espresso Grosgrain and Crumb Cake (Kraft) Seam Binding. I stamped two tiny sentiments, punched them out with the jewelry tag punch and clipped them with a library clip and a knotted linen thread!
