Snow Fun

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Vicky our challenge hostess for the month is here with one last challenge.

By now we’re in the snow season …. Let’s see an all occasion card – thinking of you, get well, hello …. Any card you can send on a normal day … no birthdays or holidays … and it should have snow on it in one way or another. 

Recently while surfing through Facebook, I came across some cute Puppy digital stamps which I NEEDED! While I was purchasing them, I also found this cutie which I thought would be perfect for this challenge. So of course I added it to the cart too haha! The image comes without a mouth so I used a stamp of a mouth that I had in an old faces stamp set.

This card was inspired by a card I created last year, I used the same base and designer paper but other than that is is change. 

I wanted my card to look like a snowy scene outside a house. So I added the Garden Notes Carolina Window & Shutters. I added the snow bank from the Pop it Ups Outdoor Edges and on each sided I added some winter trees using the CountryScapes - The Woods 1.

For the sentiment along the bottom edge of the card I used the "Play" from the new A Way with Words Fun Play die set. For the "Let's" I used the A Way with Words Let it Snow die set and separated the "Let" and used the "S" for the word "snow" to finish the word.

For the inside of the card I added some more of the brick designer paper along the bottom edge of the white panel. I then used the word "snow" for the A Way with Words Let' It Snow die set and the word "Fun" from the A Way with Words "Fun Play" die set.
