A Cute Christmas Stamp Set
I used A Cute Christmas Stamp Set to make this Christmas card. I didn't like the face of the snowman on the stamp, so I added eyes using black marker and by doing this, I changed the snowman's look. I was talking to my sideline Lauren Gilmore, about the snowman and she gave me the idea to add eyes. Take a look at the snowman on page 32 of the Hoiday Mini Catalog (on my sidebar) and you'll understand what I mean. That's the beauty of "make it your own"!
Also, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and use a color I don't nornally use, so when I decided to go for the Candy Cane Designer Series Paper, I knew I had to use Garden Green. I added glitter to the snowflakes, the snow around the snowman, the background, and the phrase. Yes, I love glitter! I also used the Circle Scissor to cut the Real Red cardstock background for the phrase. I first used the circle cutter on the Aviary Card I made last week, and now that I've used it to cut out these small circles, I think I'm finally getting the hang of it.
