FSS - Hat Tipping Snowman #1
I'm trying to keep myself cool today by making Christmas Cards. The temperature is in the high 90's and has been for two weeks now. Well, let me tell you, It doesn't work.
Actually I'm starting my Christmas cards early this year. Since these will be made in quantities, I'm keeping them rather simple, yet elegant.
My card uses two new stamps from the New Fall/Winter catalog from Close to my Heart. These stamps will be available August 1, 2013. The first one is called Classy Doily, which is behind the snowman. I first cut it out with the Close to my Heart Exclusive Cricut cartridge Artiste. The other is called Single Snowflake, which I used for the background stamped with Juniper Ink on Juniper Cardstock.
The Beautiful Pre-colored image is called Hat Tipping Snowman from Fred She Said. I added dots of liquid Applique and glitter to the dots around the snowman and then to the area under the snowman and heated slightly.
