Challenge #12 Traditional Christmas in July

Boy am I glad July's almost over...Christmas cards nice to have available when I am ready to mail, but need a break!! lol. 

I created two cards....


 

 PCDS-053 Hannah's Snowman
available at Platypuse Creek Digitals

I print and cut Hannah's Snowman three times. Placed one of the smaller size on one card where I placed a oval template over the front of the cardstock and sponged blue, hoping to give it the illusion of a sky.  Stamped snow flackes, and stamped a winter tree scene in left corner of oval.  Colored the hat goldenrod by Prisma Watercoloring pencil, and used Red and Green Stampin Up markers on scarf and used the goldenrod pencil as well.  The coal eyes, mouth and buttons all colored over with a black gel pen plus the arms.  

On the second card, I changed the direction of the card, and since my Silhouette Cameo has a 'problem' with cutting real small pieces (i.e. the smaller Hannah Snowman is missing a tree arm!) but placed her on foam to give her some depth and Han's (my name) is glued to cardstock.  I placed a stamped sentiment in two different places.

I enjoyed working on this card, and check out the website link under the photo.  Check out the challenge going on at http://www.platypuscreekdigitals.blogspot.com.

Thank you for stopping by and hugs to all.
