My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Christmas Friends

Hey Everyone!

I have another holiday card using one of the new stamps from DRS Designs today.  I love images of snowmen (as long as they have hats...lol!) and this snowman and Santa stamp (Wintertime Buddies 362M) is just delightful! It's one of the new releases this month and the moment I saw it, I knew I wanted to pair it with the stamp Friends Make Season Special (300F)
To make this card I did the following:

Stamped the image.
Dry embossed part of the card over the image itself.
Stamped sentiment on smooth portion.
Stamped image on a separate piece of paper, colored and cut it out. 
Adhered it over embossed image with glue dots and added ric rack trim.

I just love how happy this card looks :)

Thanks for stopping by and to see all of the newly released stamps, stop by DRS Designs!
