It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our new challenge hostess, which is Lynn Mc Auley.

Celebrate with Song -  I am asking that the CCEE Stampers use song lyrics from a holiday song (either secular or religious) as the sentiment on the front of their Christmas design. 

I recently received my order from Scrappy Tails Crafts of their Slimline Snow Globe Pop-up  die set and their add on die sets ... one of which is the snowman. So I decided to use that for today's challenge.

As you can see by the video above, the snowman spins around.

I found some pink snowflake patterned paper in my stash, so adhered that to some pink cardstock to die cut the main frame pieces for my snow globe. For something a little non tradition I decided to go with the colors pink and aqua/teal for my card and snowman.

I added the stamped sentiment "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" to the panel at the bottom of the card which is the challenge portion of this card. The sentiment is from a La La Land Crafts stamp set I purchased a few years ago.

I used Karen Burniston's Holiday Charms die set to add the snowflakes around the frame and sentiment.

This is the rear view of my card. For this card I decided to just create the back view of the snowman, but you could also have the snowman be the same on each side if you wanted. 

I added another Christmas sentiment to the back panel, leaving a little space to write a personal greeting. This sentiment is from the stamp set included in Classic Christmas Special Kit from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
