Hi friends! Today I have a fun & quick card that was created with the November 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit. I just love Christmas carols, stories and movies. Whenever I see a super cute snowman, I think of “Frosty the Snowman”. So I am naming my card “Frosty” because I can; after all, it is my card. LOL!
Anyway, the kit was originally designed as treat holders, but I wasn’t planning on sharing this sized treats this holiday so I re-purposed the contents.
I made my card base in Poppy Parade. Next, I mixed a small amount of our Matte Finish embossing paste with a few drops of Pool Party; then I used the Snowflake stencil in our Adorning Designs Decorative masks to stencil onto the card front. The snowflakes turned out looking more gray than blue because of the Poppy Parade paper, but even though I didn’t anticipate this, I do like it. BTW, these masks are going to retire at the end of the month; so grab yours now.
You can speed up the drying process by using your heat gun. But I wasn’t in a hurry so, I waited until the following day to adhere the snowman to the front allowing the sides and bottom extend past the card front. Then I trimmed down the snowman at the edges. I inked up only “Merry” from the kit sentiment’s “Merry Christmas” and stamped it on the front.
My Posts during the holidays will be inconsistent. We’ll be spending a lot of time with family. But I’ll still be escaping to my studio for some mood enhancement & I’ll share my creations as time allows. If you don’t want to miss a thing, sign up to follow me.
Happy Stamping, Marilyn (aka MJ)
