Let it Snow

Twelve Tags of Christmas Wrap-Up

Hi everyone.  Today I'm playing along with the latest Merry Monday Challenge (#267 - green, blue, white/silver/vellum ), run by my friend Colleen.  So happy that I had time to join in.  I LOVE this colour combo!


I used the green, blue and white colour combo for my snowman card.  I received this adorable snowman die-cut (actually several of them) from a sweet friend.  And it's the first time using a new die from a set of Christmas word dies that I received from another sweet friend.  Card makers are very generous!  I guess you could say that I had "a little help from my friends" to make this card! :)  I know I'm going to be humming that song all day long! :)

Stamped and heat embossed the background in clear on white card stock.  Sponged a light ray in lime green across the card and then blended turquoise over the rest of the snowflakes and blended into the lime green a bit too.  Ripped a piece of thick white card stock for my snowbank, glued the snowman in place, popping up to add dimension.  I sponged an extra piece of white card stock with lime green and used it to die-cut my sentiment.  Fun and easy card to make.  In fact, I made two! :)

Check out the challenge at Merry Monday.  There's just over two days before it closes.  Come play along!

When this popped up in my feed, I sighed and said to myself I love that color combination! This is just beautiful. I adore that happy snowman and the snowflakes. And the ink blending in the background is fabulous. What generous friends you have. I can also attest that cardmaking friends are the BEST! Thank you for the joy of cardmaking you share each and every time you post. Happy weekend!
