let it snow....

Hello friends!!  Here with another winter themed card for a couple of challenges, the monthly Craft's Meow sketch challenge and this week's ColourQ challenge.  It is stinkin' cold here in Western Washington, but I seriously DO NOT want it to snow and so far this winter we have managed to escape the white stuff here.  Fingers crossed that continues!  Anywhoo... on to my card.


Back in December I got this fun set from The Craft's Meow called Christmas Cheer.  It has a cool retro kinda look to it that I really liked.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make anything with it during the holiday season so I was determined to use it this month.  The ColourQ combo this week is yellow, navy blue, grey, kraft & white which I think works well for a winter card.  I stamped the snowman using navy blue ink and then trimmed him out.  The large snowflake in the background is a cool new die from My Favorite Things called the Snowflake Doily die.  The banner was cut with my favorite MFT dies... Fishtail Flag Stax dies.  Not sure I really like the snowflake embossed white cardstock piece, but maybe it will grow on me, lol!

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, yellow & kraft; SU! navy blue; Stamps:  The Craft's Meow; Ink:  SU! Navy Blue; Memento London Fog; Buttons:  PTI; Dies:  MFT Snowflake Doily; Fishtail Flag Stax; Sizzix embossing folder

Hello Rosie,
I can't believe you are still making Christmas cards! But I must say this colour combination is unique and very effective, and the background embossing looks great.
It may be freezing there, it is darn hot here!
