No Snow for Aussies

I really love snow and would love to experience a “white christmas”, unlikely though given I live in Australia and Christmas happens in summertime.  So when it comes to christmas cards I always feel a bit strange using snowflakes, snowmen and sleighs etc but I just can’t help myself.

Last night Xmas stamp-a-stack had to have a snowman card and as it turned out it was the favourite out of the four designs we made.  The snowmen are from the “Tags for All” stamp set from Stampin’ Up!’s Spring Mini Catalogue.  This particular stamp has a frame around it and the words To and From so I used a black marker to ink up the stamp so that I could use just the snowmen and exclude the parts I didn’t want. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t know if you can tell from the photo but we used some dazzling diamonds to create a line of snow underneath the image.  It looks really pretty in real life.  Here’s a close up.

Supplies:

Stamps – Tags for All; Paper – Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Whisper White; Accessories – markers, white grosgrain ribbon, circle punches, Dazzling Diamonds, 2-way glue pen, snail adhesive, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Nestabilities

    Great card Michelle – I love the embossing and the colours. You’ve inspired me to get out my Cuttlebug folders and put them to use more often. Beautiful card!
