Snowmen joy!

November 04, 2015

Hi there!!

It's Yolanda here, from Scraping Time. Today I am going to show you a Christmas card.
To make it, I have used some stamps from the "Snowman friends" set and one of the presents of the "Holiday friends" set.  One of the things I love from the "Snowman friends" stamps set is that you have different stamp sizes so I decided to use one of the smallest snowmen and the medium size one to make a night scene in my card.

I love cards with volume!! Firstly, I cut out the house with my Silhouette Cameo in kraft and watercolor cardstock. Then I took a piece of watercolor cardstock and made my yellow window's background with Lawn Fawn ink. I stamped a star there and once more in another cardstock to colouring it with Wink of Stella (grey 0,8 mm marker) before sticking it on its place. I stamped, coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out the two presents and set them on the window. Once I had it done, I put some acetate behind the window and sticked the yellow background with some foam to give it some depht. To finish the house, I decided to use a die cut as my sentiment.

Then, I stamped my cute snowmen. I coloured it with spectrum noir markers and I did paper piecing in the biggest one scarf. 
It was time to pay attention to my background. I used my Peerless Watercolors to make it and once it was dry, I used a stencil and white embossing paste for my snow flakes. But since, I wanted to have any special detail on my card, I thought it was a good moment to use for the first time my "Flower soft".  In Spain it´s not a very popular product, so for me it was like magic when I created my snow and some details in my snowman. You just have to put some glue and then the flower soft as it were glitter. You press gently and remove the excess. You can put a couple of coats althoug it's not necessary. I love the result! 

I think it gives a very cute touch to the snowman and the snow! 

Finally, I used some foam squares to set my house on the card. I had a really good time making this card. I hope you have enjoyed and have a great week!
