i have to start my christmas cards early every year! i like to make unique ones for each person, so it take a while! and i like to give myself time! since i love to make cards and get inky, i don't mind, and i love adding personal touches! :) today i have my first christmas card of 2012! lol and it's super fun! i made it for the designer drafts challenge over at paper smooches sparks!
the sketch is awesome! and it just called for me to use the tall, cool as a cucumber snowman from the swanky snowdudes stamp set! :)
i decided to paper piece everything in non seasonal colors because i love that feel! this card feel like the snowdude was out in the sun in a little too long, and got a bit of a tan! lol!
for the scarf, i used some washi tape and a button to give it some uniqueness! :)
the snowman and the little bird are both popped up for dimension. i added some pearls and fussy cut hearts to the snowflakes because i thought it would add some fun flair to the traditional snowflakes! :) ha ha! i don't know, it was late when i made this card last night, so it may be a little out there!! nevertheless, it's fun, and it makes me smile! :) enjoy!
