'Tis the Season to be Jolly Snowmen
I serve young women from 11-18 in my church. One of the upcoming activities we plan to have with them is making Christmas cards they can share with family and friends. I will be sharing several different cards that I made as examples of what they can make. This first card uses an old stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Gnome for the Holidays.
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were colored with Copic Markers and then cut with the coordinating dies.
For a background behind the images the stand of trees in the stamp set were stamped with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs inks and then embossed with clear embossing powder. This allowed me to add a night sky and moon behind them and maintain the brown color. Once the back ground was stamped and ink blended it was cut down using a stitched rectangle die.
A hill of snow was created with the Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Border die. The sentiment was stamped on this hill. Once single strip of foam tape was added to the bottom and it was adhered to the panel of trees. The placement of the foam tape allowed me to place the snowmen a little behind the hill. They were adhered with liquid glue.
Ranger Crystal Stickles were added to the moon and the top of the snow hill, and few drops were added to the sky to look like falling snow.
