Snowman Cheer

Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #12 – Snowman & Hot Beverages

Second image shows the inside section of card.

In searching for some cream coloured CS I came across a package of pre-folded card blanks that I had forgotten about. Actually when I purchased them my skill set was not that great and I couldn’t figure out how to add the PP properly, so I just put them aside and didn’t use them. At the same time I also found the little coffee cups, another embellishment that got lost in a drawer. These cups are made of wood. The snowman is my take on a Woodware stamp I had seen but not purchased. I liked it so decided to have a go at drawing my own version. It is quite similar to the actual stamp but not an actual copy as that would be infringing on someone else’s art work. I did use some stamps as my drawing skills are limited. The face is from MayMay and is made up from several in a set. The holly on the hat is from a very old Dare to be Artsy set and I added a paper hat band and scarf. I also used a black Spectrum Noir glitter brush to give sparkle although the photo doesn’t show it. The little snowflakes are fall outs from a border frame die by Papertrey and I used silver glitter on these. Paper is from a Recollections pad. This card is definitely wintery but looks a lot warmer than our current outside conditions.

I am entering this card into two challenges this week, the first Caffeinated Christmas and the second Double D. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I know what you mean. Even though I kept my previous craftroom fairly organized, I’m still finding things I had forgotten about.

    1. Thanks. I’m glad I’m inside and warm – we had 10″ of snow last night and my hubby is now struggling to clear a path so we can get out. I can’t help because I’m still too sore so I feel guilty. I am taking coffee out to warm him up.

    1. Its always fun to find something one has forgotten and to learn that one’s skill set has improved enough that they can be used. Thanks for the comment.

    1. Thanks Darlene. It took a while for me to figure out the cutting as I’m hopeless with anything arithmetic. I now have a template so I can do others more easily.
