Once again it is time for a Christmas Card Club Challenge. Lorraine at Rainey's Craft Room chose our Snowman theme this fortnight..
I am still working on using up that card kit I found. I used my last prefolded brown card base and another of the already embossed, red damask card mats. You probably recall the kraft scalloped square, and you can just see the edge of another Swiss Dots brown embossed square, peeking out from behind the image.
The image is a precoloured Sassy Cheryl and I went over the snow with a Martha Stewart glue pen and sprinkled some sparkly WOW embossing powder. Here is a close up of that sparkle...
I punched the sentiment (I think it is a Stampin' Up sentiment) with a Stampin' Up Window Word punch and layered it onto a snippet of brown card using their Modern Labels punch. The brown card does not match the rest of the browns, but seems close enough that only you and I will know for sure!
What I do notice though, is the difference in the white of the image and the white of the sentiment. I broke my usual rule of stamping the sentiment onto the offcuts of the image. Instead I used up a sentiment that I had stamped out long ago and had stored in my Xmas bits drawer. Not happy with myself as it seems rather glaringly at odds, to me.
If you would like to have a peek at the other cards, I have hyperlinks to all the members cards on my right sidebar. You will not be disappointed as there are always wonderful cards there!!!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
