To celebrate our Day 3 Preview, I've made a card, too.  Since I already did Fall and Halloween, I think I'd continue on today with Christmas.  Winter Memories is one of my FAVORITE sets in the Holiday Catalog…and I always use a theme of snowmen on my Christmas cards.  This card came together from scraps on my desk…got to LOVE that!



It started with the Designer Paper from Festival of Prints Paper Pack…have you looked at these prints?  They really are CUTE.  I liked this plaid one because it gave me a feel of vintage country.  Underneath I added the Adorning Accents Edgelit with Soft Suede cardstock.  Across the top, I already had the Cherry Cobbler Fancy Fan print made…it is the Coredinations paper and sanded for extra texture.  I wrapped some Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon around and tied a bow.  All this was placed on Very Vanilla cardstock.


I stamped the snowman scene from Winter Memories in Black Stazon on Very Vanilla and watercolored with my AquaPainters and Stampin' Write Markers in Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Gray.  It is cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits.  Then I cut a smaller Label Framelit from Soft Suede, cut it in half and layered it behind the image.  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped Merry Christmas from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Black Stazon for the greeting.


Make sure you stop by and see the Guest Designers for the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition 2012…and sign up NOW…while the Early Bird Savings is still going on.  Only a few more days left!
