Let it Snow

Yesterday, I arranged to have my snow tires put on. Like it or not, we are in November and winter could arrive at any time so I like to be prepared although I hope I won’t need them for a while yet. I still need to buy new winter boots so that is on my to do list. Anyways, with that in mind, I decided to make this card to celebrate the change in season.

The frosty friends in the SNOWMAN SEASON stamp set will warm any heart. You can create a flurry of projects using these happy snow-people and I love how each one has it’s own personality. Below is a picture of the stamp set and a few ways you can use it; cards, gift boxes and tags to name but a few.

To Make this Card

I took my card base and scored it at 4 1/4″ and burnished with my bone folder to give it a nice crisp fold and set aside.

I then took my Basic White card stock and placed it on my Stamparatus. I arranged the “Let it Snow” stamp on my plate, so it would evenly line up down the piece of card stock.

As you can see in the picture, I inked it up, then stamped it. I then moved the plate down one notch and repeated the ink/stamp again. I was able to stamp it five times, down the paper.

I love this tool because just by moving the plate down a notch each time, the stamp is perfectly aligned with the one above it. It would be very hard to do that by hand.

Once my stamped greeting was completed, I adhered it to the left front of the card. For the right side, I used some retired clear Mercury Glass Designer Acetate added than it to the right side of the card front. With the acetate, I used glue dots to adhere it and placed them on the larges opaque portions so it wouldn’t show through. I love how the paper colour filters through the Mercury Glass.

To finish my card front, I cut out two stitched circles, one in Pool Party and the other in Basic White. I stamped my happy snowman and coloured it using my blender pens. I then adhered it to the larger circle and added it to the card front with dimensional’s. I also cut out a snowflake from the SO MANY SNOWFLAKE DIES which coordinates beautifully with the SNOWFLAKE WISHES Stamp set. I then attached it to the card front as well. To finish off my card, I painted my snowman with some WINK OF STELLA to make him sparkle. You don’t really see it in the picture but it catches the light beautifully when you hold the card in hand.

TIP: If you outline the stamped image in pool party, you won’t really notice it but it helps made the image stand out just a little bit more. I do this with most of my stamped images.

To finish off my card on the inside, I stamped my greeting and a few snowflakes from the same SNOWMAN SEASON stamp set. Eh Voila! I now have a cute little card to add to my Christmas card collection.

Hmm… As I type this, I am thinking that I should address my cards as I complete them and they will be all ready to mail out when we get closer to the Christmas season. What a time saver that will be.
