Let it Snow

>> Tuesday, August 4, 2015

Hi Everyone,

It's been pretty hot the past couple of weeks in northeast Ohio where I live, but this is not a complaint.  It took summer a long time to finally arrive, so even though I'm fine with the heat, I did feel the need to cool off at one point.  I couldn't think of a better way than to pull out some holiday stamps and get started on  Christmas cards :)

I ended up with a super simple embossed snowflake card, due to a big smudge
appearing (out of nowhere (!) ) on my colored and fussy cut snowman :(  . I did my best to try and save him, covering him in glitter, but the maroon colored mistake was like a beacon flashing "boo-boo" in the middle of his forehead. . Sigh. 

To be honest, it's a happy accident because this design is one that I'm apt to mass produce for my personal Christmas card list.  I took inspiration from the song, Let it Snow and stamped the greeting 3 times, dry embossing on top of it.

I layered it on maroon card stock with a snowflake border, and in place of the snowman, I added punched snowflakes, embellished with pearl brads.

Have you started on your holiday cards?  We've got some great inspiration headed your way this week, with peeks of new stamps being released at DRS Designs!

Stay tuned :)

Karin, sorry you couldn't save your snowman. But this card turned out beautifully! I love the sentiment stamped 3 times along with the 3 snowflakes as embellishments in this lovely maroon color! This would be a great card to mass produce. Love it!

Karin, I really like the embossing and design on this! Great colors too. It is almost magical when we figure out our Christmas card design - you came up with a great one. Hugz

Well your card turned out beautifully, Karin! I can't tell you how many times that's happened to me & I've had to rethink. Great save!
