I'm a little sad that Frosty is on the retiring list - he's a cutie! I thought I'd make some cards with him while I still can.
This year for my Christmas cards, I didn't make all of my cards the same. Since I'm sending over a hundred cards out, I thought I'd get pretty bored if I made a hundred of the same card! So I chose a few favourites and made twenty of each. Plus, I'm going to use all my sample cards as well, so there will be a big mish-mash of cards out there from me.
This is one of the cards that I made a bunch of to send out. I'm really into blues this year for my Christmas cards, so I dipped into my blog candy winnings again (see this post) for this snowflake paper.
I used Whisper White as the base since it's easier to write in than Blue Bayou, which was my other choice. I stamped the swirls in Blue Bayou all over the card base, then I adhered a strip of the designer paper across the bottom. I stamped Frosty on some Whisper White and coloured him in with my aqua painters (I used Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi ink for this). For the nose and berry, I used my Stampin' Write markers (Apricot Appeal and Real Red). Then I adhered this to some Blue Bayou cardstock and sponged Blue Bayou ink all around the edges. I finished it off with some double-stitched ribbon, then adhered the whole thing to the card.
Stay tuned tomorrow - I made some altered notebooks as gifts for people, and since I'm giving them the notebooks tomorrow, I can post them after that!
