Another Christmas Card


As promised, here is another Christmas card. This one is a little more time consuming than the others but I have a few friends that love snowmen. This card was made using just two stamps! The snowmen and sentiment are one stamp that I stamped with blue pigment ink and embossed with a clear glitter embossing powder. It was then painted with Radiant Pearls, cut apart and layered onto dark blue and confetti papers. The card was stamped with snowflakes using stonewashed Adirondack ink, then the edge was torn, sponged with stonewashed the dark blue paper was glued to the inside top panel. After that ribbon was added and the pieces were glued on. For the final touch snowflake stickers were added to the dark blue panel and a circle sticker was put in the center of the two layered snowflakes.
Today it is 104 degrees here is sunny Southern California, I wanted to wash the dogs and my car but it is way to hot! Hope you are staying cool where you are!

Hi Jamie, I see you are getting those annoying lotto messages too. I received three in one minute. They should take up stamping then they wouldn't be so bored LOL>

Hi!

Love that card! Is so detailed and beautiful!

For the lotto messages what I did was enable the moderation of comments. I still let others post annonymous and not google comments, but I can reject them from appearing in my blog.

Take care!
