Let it snow...
So despite the title of my post, I don't really want it to snow, I am loving being back in NYC in the sunshine.
A blog buddy of mine Cara has been playing along with 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
I think its a great way for someone like me who doesn't love making Christmas cards to a) get enthused and b) explore my stash.
This week the theme is landscapes -
I had a lot of fun making my card.
I broke out a fun die by Gina Marie Designs - it's falling dots and looks like snow to me, I added a bit of Tumbled Glass distress ink to look like sky here and there. I combined it with a stitched hill die by Lawn Fawn.
I recently acquired a great set by Newton's Nook 'Snow Day' and I stamped and fussy cut the Winston Snowman / snowbear?!
I hunted through my stash for an appropriate sentiment and came up with 'Let it snow' by Unity Stamp Co.
This was so much fun to do and I am so happy with my card, it's kind of made me love Christmas Cards all over again.. I will be playing again!
