Hello! As always, it's the last day of the month and I finally have my July Christmas Cards ready to post. As most of you already know, I play the Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge where we make Christmas Cards all year long so that were not stressed out during the busy holiday season. I make five cards a month so that I will have over fifty cards at the end of the year. I make long cards: 4 1/4 by 8 1/2 so that I can fit a Christmas Letter and a Photo Card inside. I also try to keep my layers to a minimum so that the cards are easier and more cost efficient to mail.
For this month I made five identical cards using the retired Stampin Up! set 'Frosty'. I chose a snowflake designer paper from DCWV and simply stamped the snowman and the sentiment right on the designer paper. Then I stamped the snowman a second time on white card stock and colored in only his hat, scarf, nose, and buttons. I then cut only the main figure of the snowman out (not the hands , holly or snow). Then I adhered him to his stamped image on the designer paper.
Have a great day! Amy
