Happy Holidays Snowman Card - My December 14th contribution to all things festive this month December 14 2016, 0 Comments

I haven't blogged for a couple days but that doesn't mean I haven't been making festive artwork in the meantime. I just so happened to have my birthday on Monday and have been sort of enjoying the whole experience with family and friends. I know you've missed my daily dose of "cuteness" and I'm adding this "Happy Holidays" snowman card as my contribution for the day.

To start, the 5.25" x 7" card was layered with papers from Maker's Mart (a card-making supplier that sends monthly card and die-cut kits, that I am a member of). Each of the papers is cut to leave 1/8" border. The five snowmen are rubber stamped using black StazOn permanent ink and were then painted with watercolors.

The close ups show the silver sparkles in the snow. This was done by coloring in the snowy areas with a Wink Of Stella glitter pen. It makes the colored areas glimmer. The more you apply, the more it shines.

These snowmen are just too cute.

A couple of red cardinals and a bunny are included in this rubber stamp image. The edges of the white papers are colored using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Stormy Sky Distress inks.

The "Happy Holidays" label has three foam pop-dots to make it pop off of the page like in the photo below. You'll also notice the snowflake rubber stamp used along the edges of all three papers. There are several snowflakes randomly scattered in the background and come in two sizes to give the pattern some variation.

The card came out as adorable as I had hoped. I'm planning on sending this one to someone on my list. And please know that I can recreate this card with slight variations in papers, for any sized order.  

Thank you for reading my blog. Enjoy your day.
