An Aussie Snowman!

alota-aussie-snowman-wm

Hi everyone,

I have another Alota Rubber Stamp card to share with you today, this time using the “Aussie Snowman” unmounted plate designed by my friend Susan Uncle. I received a card using this set just before Christmas before it was even released and knew as soon as I saw it that is was a stamp I HAD to have hehe! I used a Snow Marker to add snow effects to the sentiment.

Down here in Australia right now we are in the middle of summer so the only type of snowman we could have would be water! It wouldn’t take long to melt at all. Even in winter where I live it doesn’t get cold enough for snow, of course there would be some places where you could make snowmen in winter but not many.

I decided seeing it was an Aussie Snowman to go with bright summery colors for my card.  The layout for this card is a sketch I saw recently online at Michelle Wooderson’s blog, I loved the sketch so just had to use it.

Don’t forget that you can receive 20% discount when you order from Alota Rubber Stamps .... all you have to do is use the coupon code: FBDTCHAL when you place your order. You can use this coupon code as many times as you like throughout January.

Hi Francis,

That stamp's a classic.

Great card!
