I'm back to posting for Sparkle N Sprinkle again, and I love that the holidays are almost upon us. It's the best time of year for making cards :)
Due to hurricane Sandy, we postponed the blog hop until next week. We want to make sure as many people as possible have their power back and can join in the fun of inspiration and prizes! So note that change and plan to hop with us.
Until then, let me whet your appetite with this cute snowman card made with the
Merry Crows (385) stamp set and some Velvet Glitter. It's one of the new hot products here at Sparkle N Sprinkle.
I created the background papers using the Starry Believe (3045-385c) stamp from that same set and some Red Apple (EP276) embossing powder. To try and keep things speedy when making multiple holiday cards, I chose to simply outline Slim (3051-385c) the snowman with a grey Copic (C1) and add some Gypsy Red (GM2005) Velvet Glitter to his scarf using dimensional glue.
The snowflake behind him was die cut from Sticker Paper (99558) and coated in that very fine glitter. It's so soft to the touch, it really feels like velvet, hence the name :) . Try it and you will be amazed!
I used a bit of ribbon, foam letters and a doily to add some interest, but still keep it flat and easy to mail for the holidays :)
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and check out my card gallery for all the specific details on this card.
P.S. I've been getting spammed on my blog like crazy lately. I've tried sticking my head in the sand for the past week, hoping that it would simply go away. That's always my first strategy, so I've not been visiting or commenting anywhere either. So right now I've turned on comment moderation for old posts. I'll see if that helps for now and know that I'll be by to check on your blogs real soon.
