Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Hi, everyone!

I’ve got another blue Christmas card with the adorable snowmen from the Little Snowman Agenda stamp set from Mama Elephant.

I colored up these snowmen for Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day coloring challenge in June of last year, so it felt good to finally put them to use. Another thing I put to use? Those die cut squares. They were left over from this card where I stacked die cut frames for a dimensional look. I used a little bit of a trick with graph paper and Press’n Seal to make sure my squares were straight, evenly spaced and centered. Worked like a charm, it’s a trick I’ll definitely use again in the future!

I had 12 snowmen, but I needed room for a sentiment, so I stamped one from Norsk Stempelblad AS onto one of the die cut white squares using Papertrey Ink Enchanted Evening ink and glued the last snowman to the inside of the card instead.

I used the largest die in the Stitched Rectangles Stax Set 1 from My Favorite Things on some Enchanted evening card stock, and glued it to my Stamper’s Select White card base before adding all the squares with 1 mm foam squares. I then used more 1 mm foam squares on the back of the snowmen. Dimension is life, as Laura Bassen says. I didn’t want this card to be too thick, though, so I stuck with the 1 mm. Added some snowflakes die cut with the Hero Arts Snowflake Confetti die, and my card was finished.
