Simple Snowman Greeting Card
First, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends! I will take a moment to acknowledge what I'm thankful for. I am thankful for all that God provides for me; physical, spiritual and emotional. I am grateful for my husband, and all the friends and family God has placed in my life. For those that are still here on Earth who I see way too infrequently, and those who are waiting in heaven.
Today's card meets a few challenges. Challenge 158 at One Stop Craft Challenge, and three over at
Splitcoaststampers (SCS). The One Stop Craft Challenge was to use blue. For the Splitcoaststampers, the first one is Clean and Simple CAS145--Winter/Christmas, the second is Ways to Use it WT350--Fancy Ribbon, no bows or straight lines, and the third is Try a New Technique TLC352--Make Snow.
The base of the card is Bashful Blue, with a layer of Whisper White that I embossed with a snowflake embossing folder by Cuttlebug.
I used a square punch and cut out a space for the stamped image to show through.
The stamp set I used for the outside is Festive Four.
I used shimmery blue snowflake ribbon for my fancy ribbon challenge.
Here is a close up of the snowman stamped on the front and windowed with the Whisper White.
One more look at the finished card. Thanks for stopping and happy stamping!
