Even though it's 90 degrees outside, it's not too early to start your holiday cards! The twenty-fifth of every month is Christmas for my stamp class. Here's one of the cards we made this month:
Kind of makes you feel cooler just looking at that little penguin standing on the snowbank, doesn't it?
I love the crisp combination of Whisper White & Pool Party together.
Here are the details:
Stars Framelits - use the second largest size to cut the white card front, then run it through your Big Shot using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. Mount it to an A2 size card base made out of Pool Party cardstock. The snowbank is from the new Thoughtful Branches stamp set, stamped in Pool Party ink then outlined with liquid Tombow glue and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The cool penguin dude is from the Snow Place stamp set. He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, and his feet & beak are colored with Peekaboo Peach on a Blender Pen. The scarf and earmuffs are stamped in Pool Party and all 3 pieces are die-cut with the matching Snow Friends Framelits. The greeting I used is from a retired set called Cozy Christmas. I stamped it on a 4" square piece of Pool Party cardstock using Whisper White craft ink and embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Then simply die-cut it with the same Star Framelit and it will fit perfectly inside the cut-out on the card front. Smaller stars punched from Dazzling Diamonds and Silver Glimmer Paper complete this card.
Don't forget to use your Bonus Days coupons when placing your August order! Also, Thoughtful Branches is available beginning August 2. Take a close look at this set - it would be a wonderful addition to your collection!
Have a great week & thanks for stopping by,
