Christimas In July
Today I've gone from 30C temperatures and a water park to a winter wonderland LOL! I fell in love with this cute Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Snow Friends couple the moment I saw them! You can't help but smile when you see them :) Actually the whole set is fabulous and I can't wait to use some of the other images.
I used an OCC sketch from a few weeks back for my layout and was thrilled to be able to pair it with my new Seeing Spots embossing folder. I have visited several of my regular haunts only to find it sold out, but this week was my lucky week - yeah!! That means I now have a small dot and a large dot embossing folder to play with so I'm purring like a kitty! In this case, since it's a Christmas themed card, the large dots reminded me of snowballs, so I decided to use it instead of snowflakes.
The snowmen are coloured with Twinkling H2O's since I don't own any Copics. I added glitter to make snow and also added glitter to her earmuff and his hat band and pompom. As you can see, I messed up on the hat colouring - ugh! I accidentally coloured the band blue instead of leaving it white so I tried to hide it by putting glitter over top, but it didn't work as you can still see the blue underneath. I'm blaming the cat LOL! I added this adorable sentiment, some pink ribbon and two blue snowflakes as per the sketch design and called it a card.
Thanks for visiting today and I'll see you tomorrow with my sample card for the next Curtain Call Colour Challenge!
