Happy Holidays

>> Tuesday, December 19, 2017

Hi Everyone,

It's getting to be crunch time when it comes to the holiday handmade items, so my card share is on the simple side today.  I always figure that's ok since the stamps themselves are super cute :) Nothing wrong with letting them shine on their own, right?  

I stamped the blue background with the Easy Dot Background stamp and some white craft ink.  I know it's subtle in the photo, but it looks like a cute alternative than the usual snowflake background.   
I colored and fussy cut the Stretch the Round Button Snowman and layered him onto a die cut that I embossed.  That embossing folder had both dots and snowflakes, so it matched the stamped background.  

For the greeting I used the Small Happy Holidays stamp and my circle punches, along with a snowflake punch that I thought matched the embossed ones behind that frosty guy :)

After finishing this card, I went and checked my mail.  Surprise!  A whole new batch of cute stamps arrived and I couldn't wait to ink them up.  So while I had the stuff on my table from this card above, I just went ahead and made a duplicate using the new Flakey Friends Greeting!  Check it out:

Happy Holidays to You and Yours!

What a perfect last minute card Karin! The black is the perfect accent to the blue and white! Glad the timing on the new stamps worked so you could make a 2nd!
