Anyway, here is a new card that I made with my Lizzie Anne set, Christmas in the City. I don't know what it is about this snowman, but I love him!!! This card will be included with the ones that my coworkers can order their Christmas cards from. I used Bashful Blue for the card base and Cuttlebugged a piece of Whisper White with the Snowflake folder. I made a little tag with some circle punches and stamped the small snowflake first and then stamped 'joy' from one of the new Papertrey sets in Rose Red over top. I added some grosgrain ribbon overtop but the tag isn't actually attached to the ribbon, it's just an illusion!!! I punched a hole in the top so it looks like the ribbon runs through it, but it's actually just laying over top of the hole and the tag itself is attached to the card, that way it lays flat but still looks attached. Does that make sense.....am I rambling??

Anyway, I stamped Mr. Snowman on Shimmery white cardstock in Archival Versafine Black Onxy ink and coloured him in with my SU markers and Aquapainter. I used my CM circle cutting sytem to cut him out, my Mega Circle Punch to punch out the Rose Red matting and my Giga Scalloped Circle Punch to do the Bashful Blue layer. I used my mat pack to make the holes in each of the scallops and pop dotted the whole piece!!

Now go celebrate World Cardmaking day and go stamp something!!! Actually I'd love to hear your plans for today and maybe share what you made in this post here!!! Have a stampin' good day!!!!

Just gorgeous. I love the snowflake embossing on white paper - it's so elegant. Your colors are crisp and beautiful. I'm so sad I was nowhere near a stamp or a computer on World Cardmaking Day.
