Christmas in March (barely!)

Soooo much is going on right now, I haven't had time to get in my craft room for almost two whole weeks!!! I am definitely suffering severe withdrawals. :-D The only thing that has kept me sane is I've been working very hard in the garden getting it ready for spring planting. Gardening is my other passion, so no matter what the weather, I always have something to keep me busy, LOL.

This is the Christmas card design I came up with for March. I'm still on course for four Christmas cards per month, woohoo! This one was easy-peasy, which is good, since I haven't had time to stamp and color anything.

I started with some snowman peel-offs made by Mark Richards (availa
ble from Paper Wishes), placed on Whisper White cardstock cut just slightly larger than the stickers. They were colored with Copic markers, and matted on Brilliant Blue cardstock on which I stamped snowflakes with VersaMark Dazzle Frost, (which gives the most lovely subtle frosty sheen!) and tied a ribbon.

The layout give me a bit of trouble, until I decided to turn the snowpeople askew. I felt it still needed something, so I matted them (again) on white cardstock to make 'em stand out a bit from the designer paper background.

The sentiment is from Heart & Soul Rubber StampCo.
