Who in the world is wanting to create a snowman card in April?!? Spring has been very slow in arriving this year here in Vermont, and I'm definitely not wanting any more snowmen to appear in my neighborhood. However, I made a goal (dare I say "resolution"?) back in January to create a different holiday card design each month, and add to my stash by at least 5 cards in that design. This snowman card is my next batch of Christmas cards that I'm adding to my stash, and I'm happy to report that I made 9 of them, which is a lovely addition.
My inspiration for this month came from a sketch challenge from Always Playing with Paper. Each Monday they post a new Christmas card challenge on the blog, and I've enjoyed occasionally participating in their challenges. I'm really appreciating using their challenges to help me meet my year-long goal. I'm looking forward to perhaps using another inspiration from their blog for my May creations.
I used the following materials to make this card:
- Stamps: Stylin' Snowfolk
- Cardstock: Garden Green, Baja Breeze, Real Red, Whisper White
- Ink: Garden Green, Basic Black, Early Espresso, Real Red, Baja Breeze, Pumpkin Pie
- Accessories: Candy Cane Christmas DSP (retired), 1 1/4" Circle punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Northern Flurry embossing folder, Stampin' Dimensionals
