Hello all! I have my very first Christmas card of the season to share. I know. Shocker! I am typically a "Last Minute Lucy!" This card below is actually one that I plan to use as a Thank You after the season! Since it's Power Poppy Friday, I thought it was a good time to share! I hosted Creative Confetti earlier this week (click HERE to see the challenge) and helped usher in a fun sketch for you to try your creative hand at! Check it out....
On to My Creation!
I used Power Poppy's Snow Kissed clear set for my card. I just ADORE this little snow guy! This image is really kind of on the larger side but with my layout, I knew I wanted my snowman just peeking out of the top. So I stamped him using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used a stitched circle die to cut him out. On the top rectangle, I used one of the nordic patterns in the set to tie in the Fair Isle/Nordic look! I colored the snow guy up with Copic markers and really didn't use a ton of them -- a couple reds, a couple greens and then BV20 and BV23 for his hat. I accented with RV0000, some white gel pen and, of course, glitter glue! Love those little sparkles on anything snow!
If you've not seen this set, here's a peek at the entire set for you!
I am showing you because you can see that the sentiment I used is only a part of the sentiment in the set. So.... how did I do that? It's as simple as a little bit of masking tape!
So, I added the tape covering up those top words before inking it up. I realized after I constructed my card base that the top portion just wouldn't fit. So, thanks to a little tape....
I inked it up, pulled off the tape and then stamped! A perfect fit! After I was done stamping, it was just as simple as matting it up, adding some fun stitched ribbon and a few little red rhinestones. Easy Peasy! To get in the spirit, I actually cued up some Christmas tunes as I created and it was so fun, I am actually looking forward to some marathon afternoons in my stamp room. Now, to come up with some ideas! ;-)
Well, since it's Friday, you know what that means!
This fabulous lady had some time this week to create, so be sure to stop by and say"hi!"
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a beautiful and creative weekend ahead! I'll see you back here real soon!
Until next time!
