How cosy does this cute little fellow look all wrapped up in his scarf, he won’t be bothered by his frosty surroundings created from the Feels Like Frost Specilaity DSP. I added a little extra frostiness to the card by using a few drops of the Shimmery Crystal Effects.
The penguin comes from the Playful Penguins stamp set and after I fussy cut him out I added a little Mango Melody to his feet and and beak. His cosy scarf is stamped in Highland Heather.
The greeting also stamped in Highland Heather comes from the stamp set Greatest Part of Christmas, which is a hostess set from the Autmn/Winter catalogue and only available with Stampin’ Rewards gained from and order over £150.00.
This card is the result of a crafty session where I just wanted to make so backgrounds with my stamping stash. For the base I used Shimmery White Cardstock as this is my favourite to use when doing ink blending. I chose Seaside Spray and Blushing Bride for my background as I was going for a subtle look, possibly Balmy Blue would have been better for a subtle look. I like the almost stormy look which Seaside Spray has given to the card.
For some more shimmer to the background I used the snowflake stamp from Free Skate and stamped it all over my background in Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink, now when you move the card in the light you get the shimmer from the snowflakes.
To finish my card I added a length of Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon across the middle of the card to add even more silver shimmer and then stamped the “Christmas Greetings” stamp from Greatest Part of Christmas in Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink onto some oval matts cut from the Layering Oval Dies.
As a final touch I added some silver foil snowflakes cut from the Christmas Layers dies for a last bit of silver. I love how this card turned out, it reminds me of the sparkle left on freshly fallen snow.
What do you do when you want to make a card quickly? You use a punch and some paper and thats exactly what I did here. The Let It Snow Speciality DSP has some wonderful festive patterns featuring snowmen, so of which can be punched out with the Snowman Builder Punch. Making cute snowmen in seconds and whats more some sheets of the Let It Snow DSP have glitter accents and so instant sparkle for your card.
I used the punch to create some twig arms for the snowmen, cut in black cardstock to match the background paper. I also added a couple of the felt hats from the Let It Snow Embellishment kit to add a little more cuteness.
I also added some of the Real Red Rouched 1″ Ribbon for some additonal interest and texture and finished off the card by adding a greeting from the Greatest Part of Christmas.
A quick card to put together but plenty of interest when you use many of the products in the Let It Snow Suite.
