I made a bit of a dent in my Christmas card list today, thank goodness. But only because I decided to change tactics. I am making everything in pairs, 2 cards of every design (which is something I never do). So I will share one of them with you today.
Paper: cardstock (PTI); designer paper (MME: 12 Days of Christmas)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Copic Markers; Iced Spruce distress ink; PTI's Aqua Mist dye ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (AR159); PTI (Tiny Tags 1 & 2)
Other: Diamond stickles; Perfect Pearl Mist; Clear Embossing powder; dyed crinkle ribbon; PTI's Tiny Tags die; Dimensional squares
I found an already cut out oval and saw that this cute snowman fitted really nicely into it. So I stamped and embossed him and then coloured him with some copic markers. I also used some Iced Spruce to distress a little around the edges. (I am loving that colour!).
After adding a strip of patterned paper to my card I tied some crinkle ribbon and added the tag, and then I adhered the snowman image, which I had spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mist, using some dimensional foam!
I like it, it's kind of cute and I am enjoying using the patterned papers from the "12 Days of Christmas" 6 X 6 paper pad by My Mind's Eye.
Well, we are quite cold here today! It was 39F when I went for my run this morning. Although my body stayed warm, my nose, lips and ears did get quite cold! But I was really enjoying myself, and running in cold weather always makes your times faster which is a real plus!
I hope that you are all having a great day where ever you are!
