Stamp Simply -- Christmas In July!!

Hi all! Time for a frosty Friday Stamp Simply Challenge!! The temperature may say summer, but this challenge is all about Christmas! It's never too early to start those Christmas cards -- is it!?! You can check out Sharon's blog for all the official details!

My card really couldn't get any "simpler!" The snowman, snowflake and saying are all brand new just released at CHA stamps from Impression Obsession. Aren't they cute? I stamped them on white, colored the snowman and then used a 1-1/4" circle punch to punch them out. I used my Spellbinders circle Nestabilities to make the larger circle out of silver paper. I matted them up, added some bling to the snowflakes and was done with that part! I corner rounded two edges of my distressed blue strip and matted it on a piece of silver that also had some rounded corners. I used my slot punch (SU!) to create the slit for my sheer blue ribbon and silver embroidery thread. Tie the ribbon in a knot, add a sentiment in black ink and done! This could easily be a ten minute card!

Here's a close up to show how cute that little snow guy is! I am a sucker for snow men!!!
