Care for Some Snow.......anyone??


This card meets both the SC291 sketch challenge as well as the Technique Tuesday challenge TTSC1 to use TT stamps. I'm fortunate to have several TT sets so I decided to play along.
For this card I used the "No Two Alike" set, stamping in bashful blue. After stamping, I embossed the whole panel with a CB snowflakes ef. I created the bashful blue snowflake with a MS snowflake punch, and layered it with white and enchanted evening cardstocks using my Cricut. {George cartridge} The shape is supposed to be a sun, but it perfectly matched my snowflake, so I officially turned it into a snowflake for this card. The snowflake brad is from my stash. The sentiment is by G Studio and was stamped in PTI's enchanted evening. This was a quick and simple sketch and a fun way to revisit some stamps I haven't used in a while. It's also my first Christmas card this year!! Woot!!
Stay cool out there!!!!
