I've been hollering lately about people making Halloween Cards and Christmas Cards. I know we card-makers work ahead, but IT IS STILL AUGUST! GIVE IT A REST!
So, today I made a Christmas card, but not because I got new Christmas goodies. I can't even look at those yet. Nope, it's because the lovely ladies at Jingle Belles came up with a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge, and I love those! So many options!
Here's my card, then I'll explain:
I chose the Glitter/Die-cuts/Stamping diagonal, because I cheated. A couple of years ago I used this guy for my holiday cards (I didn't make enough throughout the year and still had to come up with my own design), and I had a stack of extra snowmen all stamped and cut. That took care of the Stamping and Die-cutting squares. Now I just needed glitter.
So first I colored my snowman, then cut the hills (more die-cutting!). I sponged the clouds/sky, then stuck everything down. I put foam behind the snowman's head to even him out, since his bod was on top of the hills.
For the Glitter requirement, I added clear Wink of Stella to his eyes and hat band. You can almost see it here:
Wow, one more Christmas card made. Whoot! I'll probably still need to make my own design this year. Hmmm, I have a stack of these left. Hmmm ...
Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: Hero Arts Snow Much Joy stamp set (I think it's retired), Simon Says Stamp Make A Scene with Masks (I can't find it in the store, so it may be retired. But you can use any cloud shape, even one you draw yourself!), and the following:
