Holiday crafting is in full swing here so that I'm ready for Christmas when it gets here. Today I wanted to combine something old with something new. The new? The Snowman and Reindeer Spellbinders Die sets from their new Holiday Die D-lites 2018 Collection, the old? The stamp I used for the greeting and the patterned paper base. It's always a great feeling to break out some of the older supplies and put them to use.
Let's talk about this wee snowman for a minute. Could he be any cuter?! I decided that instead of dressing him in classic colors, I would experiment and put him in a shabby chic color scheme... and, it worked! I loved it! So, meet Frosty, the Shabby Chic Snowman, lol!
SUPPLY LIST FOR BOTH CARDS:
Dies: Die D-Lites Snowman Etched Dies 2018 Holiday, Die D-Lites Reindeer Etched Dies 2018 Holiday, Nestabilities Scalloped Ovals Lg
Patterned paper: Cardmaking Pad 1 by Pebbles
Stamps: Most wonderful time of the year is from an old Studio Calico monthly kit
Catherine Pooler Inks: Midnight
Cardstock: Neenah Solar White, scraps of green, pink, aqua, taupe, brown cardstock
Other: old mother of pearl and plastic buttons, page from an old ledger
After making the snowman, I moved onto the Reindeer Die set. Oh my, is he ever adorable too!
Each card has the identical design, the only difference is which character is in the center of the card. I had so much fun making these and foresee making a few more to give out this holiday season.
Thanks for your visit!
