I hope you all had a fabulous Easter! It is one of my favorite holidays! Today, for the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, Marcia has challenged us to create a Christmas card using Red and White! I love this crisp color combination! I hope you'll join us!
To begin, I rummaged through my stamps trying to find something that I haven't used in a while, but could fit in the red and white parameters. I was thrilled to remember this cute Pom Pom Pals stamp set that I've only used once. You can see the project I made with it HERE. The snowman image was really the only one that would work in red and white, and I did have to cheat a smidgen by adding an orange nose and a bit of blue to give him a bit of depth. I stamped the image using Palette Black ink and then colored the image using Copic markers. I die cut the circle using a Nestabilities die and then I used the Scene It: scalloped base to die cut a red piece. These two are adhered together using foam squares.
I found an old piece of SU! striped paper and trimmed it to the appropriate width to fit through the slots on the scalloped piece. The white background is dry embossed using an old Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I also added some white Nuvo drops to some of the raised dots for even more dimension. The sentiment is heat embossed in white and then added using a double layer of foam squares. I found the snowflake in my stash and added it with a button in the center. I also added a few buttons to the ear muffs. The entire focal piece is added to an A2 red card base for some definition. Thanks for fluttering by!
