For this week’s 3,2,1 Challenge, CRAFT wants to use 3 embellishments, 2 papers, 1 image. I made my cards using our sponsor’s, Pickled Potpourri Designs, digi stamps - SNOWMAN TAGS. This set comes with an image of three snow friends, a snowman tag, plus a snowflake background. I also used their JINGLE HOLLY BACKGROUND digi stamp. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from PI. I “painted” the snowmen with white glue then sprinkled with fine diamond dust glitter by Rangers.
For this card I coloured the snowman and holly background with Copic markers. For my embellishments I cut out two holly berries from the background and added them to the image and added glitter to the snowmen. I used solid red card stock, plus neenah solar white 80lb for the images, and I used the Snow Tag snow friends image.
I entered this card into 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - February Stash Challenge
I always like making a couple of cards at a time, changing them up. For this card I changed the background, and used the snowflakes pattern included with the Snowman Tags digis. I printed it both on white and blue card stock, and added a scalloped border to join the two.
For this card, I used a patterned card stock for the background. I freehand cut out some snow hills for the foreground. I added two snowflakes die cuts by Paper Smooches plus some gems from my stash.
I entered this card into Completely Christmas – Add Texture and Sparkle N Sprinkle – March Competition
While making the cards, I had to make up some of the tags from the Snowman tag set. For one I paper pieced the hat and scarf, and the second I simply Copic coloured the little fellow. I added glitter to the snowman only.
Please join us March 5th – 11th.
