The Stamping Boutique Snowman Sign


What a fun card to make!  

I used The Stamping Boutique's Snowman Sign digital image and colored it with Copic markers and cut it out with Spellbinders rectangle and scalloped rectangle dies.  The snowflakes are also a die from My Favorite Things Stamps die-namics line.  

It's so nice to have a die to cut snowflakes instead of those old dull punches.  This die is a little shallow so I do have to use a shim with it, waxed paper as the first layer being cut also helps eject the snowflakes after they are cut.   The layout for my card is a sketch by Alissa Marotta for the Stamps R Us challenge blog in October.  "Celebrate The Season" is a from a Papertrey Ink stamp set and the card stock colors are, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Neenah Linen Red, Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue, Stampin' Up! Creamy Carmel and I added some nice blue rhinestones to finish it off.

Oh this is lovely Jan - red isn't usually teamed with blue at Christmas so it's non-trad enough for me! Thank you for helping us to celebrate our first birthday at Crafty Ann's
