Don't ask me why I made a Christmas card with the colors from the Inspirations Color Challenge #84. I guess I liked the idea of using the snowmen on the Paper Players Challenge #60. I really liked the colors so I just went with it.
The card base is Concord Crush card stock. I ran a piece of Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, added Daffodil Delight ribbon along with a rhinestone brad and attached it to the card front. The small snowman from the Merry Winter stamp set was stamped on Whisper White three times and heat embossed with VersaMark, Concord Crush ink, Daffodil Delight Ink and Tangerine Tango embossing powder. Each was punched out with the Large Tag punch. The greeting from the Curly Cute stamp set was stamped with Concord Crush ink on a piece of Tangerine Tango. This was attached to the card front. The three snowmen were added using dimensionals. A rhinestone was added to each hat for a little sparkle. I am really happy with the result even if the colors are a little unorthodox for a holiday card (hubby is a traditionalist, red and green, and says these would be great Halloween colors. I guess you could say these are trick or treaters dressed in snowmen costumes). We are waiting out Irene to see how much we'll be affected. We are 90 miles north of NYC and they are expecting to get hit hard. To anyone in the line of the storm, be safe and cautious. Will be back again soon.
