A Little Christmas Magic for Merry Monday #215

Happy October and Happy World Card Making Day (if you haven’t already heard!).  Wow…a day to do just what most of us probably do several times a week or even on a daily basis.  We certainly don’t need a special day but why not?!

Today, I am entering a new-to-me challenge.  I follow many stampers who make such beautiful Christmas card year-round by participating in the Merry Monday weekly challenge.  Here is this week’s color challenge….

215

While I love the traditional Christmas colors, it is always fun to see something a little different and fresh.  These colors fit that bill.

Here are the Details…

  • The card base is Whisper White thick cardstock with a mat of Flirty Flamingo.
  • The DSP is from the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper Pack…looks like snow to me!
  • To create the winter scene, I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock free hand to look like a snow mound, then ran it through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder.
  • The picket fence was created using the Halloween Scenes Edgeless Dies.  I am always happy when I can find additional uses for a holiday product and this was perfect for this card.
  • The sweet little snowman is certainly the star of the card.  He is stamped in Basic Gray Archival Ink and colored just a bit with Stampin’ Write Markers.  I fussy cut and popped him up with dimensionals.
  • The star/snowflake was a happy accident.  It was leftover from a stocking I cut out using the Christmas Stockings Thinlits Dies.
  • The sentiment is stamped in Versa-Mark, embossed in Silver embossing powder and cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.

  • The inside of the card is stamped with another cute image from the Christmas Magic stamp set and colored with markers.
  • The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.  This set has such sweet images as well as sentiments which make it the “complete package” in my book!
