Had a good week-end. Lots of people over on Saturday. Ended up with way too much food but it was a good time.
I have two cards today. They are both fromt he Groovy Snowman set from Just Rite Stampers.
Again on this card I went with the fun and bright Christmas paper. Nestabilities for the circles and Spellbinders snowflake die for the star or snowflake, which ever you choose. The snowflake was cut out of white cardstock and colored over with a copic marker to make it match the rest of the card. Some smooch spritz for a little glamour as well as stickles on the snowflakes in the snowmans hand.
I really like this card. The spellbinders Dahlia die used to cut the border and the green background. It was a natural fit for the shape of the border. The style of the card is an "easel" fold. Directions for this type of card can be found on Splitcoast Stampers. Green embossing powder on gold cardstock. Border punch a piece of green cardstock for the top and bottom. With an easel card you need to create something that will act as a stopper so the card will stand up. I used the additional layers of cardstock but you could also use brads, eyelets, buttons...etc.
Hope Deborah is finding lots of new stuff to bring into her store (http://www.fargocatshops.com/). She is attending the summer craft & hobby show where they are showcasing all the new stuff soon to be released.
