Christmas Cards 2018-jan-26

Happy Friday!!

The weekend is just around the corner, I bet you're looking forward to a crafty weekend.

I got a head start today and made a couple Christmas cards (same design).

Very CAS.   I stamped and white heat embossed (Let It Snow from Winnie & Walter) then used inking tool to sponge Tumbled Glass and Broken China right on the white card base.  Then I adhered the snowman (Frosty Wishes from Hero Arts) which is stamped in Tuxedo Black, it's nose colored using coloring pencils, fussy cut and embellished with a ribbon scarf.  The "Snow much joy" is stamped and clear heat emboss (Playful Lowercase from Hero Arts) on a speech bubble die cut (Stamp & Cut Yes from Hero Arts) and adhered using foam tape.

Usually I'd create a ground for the snowman, but today I used the edge of the card instead.  I trimmed a tiny bit off the bottom of the snowman and align it with the card base.

This card is really mail friendly, since it is quite flat.
