Snowman Tag Christmas Card

by Joanne James28. November 2014 21:09

It's Friday and the end of the working week - hurrah! Today's card is a triple challenge card; it's not often that happens! I'm using the sketch over at Retrosketches, with this week's Color Throwdown colour palette and the tag and snowman mean it also fits with the challenge over at The Card Concept (clean and layered):

      

I didn't intentionally set out to create a tag card, but as I was working with the sketch and colour palette, I thought a tag would look quite cute. Here is my card:

I used Coastal Cabana for my base, stamped one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamps in the same colour across the front and edged this with some red Beach House washi tape. I then layered a couple of pieces of now-retired DSP stack (the colours were perfect for this card and although this was a Spring/Summer paper stack, this pattern has always reminded me of snowflakes), some silver glimmer paper and then my tag. I punched my tag using the angle tag topper punch from Coastal Cabana cardstock, stamped the tree from the 'White Christmas' stamp set onto the tag then stamped it again onto a piece of Whisper White and paper-pieced the snowscape and snowman onto it. I coloured the tree with my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write marker and added some snow with my chalk pen, then added some detail to the snowman with my markers and stamped some snow across the rest of the tag with white kraft ink. I finished my tag with some Crumb Cake seam-binding ribbon and Real Red cotton ribbon tied in a bow, and stamped my Holidays' sentiment in Real Red onto Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered this to my tag, along with a silver glimmer star. 

Hope you like today's card; I have a busy weekend of fun and frolics planned, so an early night in store for me!

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

This is a great card!! Love the tag you created and those papers are perfect for a winter/holiday card. I'll have to remember that since I still have a bunch!

Thanks Kristie! I saw the colour palette and had a flash of inspiration about those papers and when I wrote my blog post I couldn't even remember what the stack was called, so glad you recognise them!

Joanne, this card is fabulous.  I never think to use just a part of a stamp set and you really showed me that I need to get outside of my box!  This card is beautifully composed.... love it

Thanks Jaydee! I find collage-style cards really difficult so this kind of layering is as good as it gets for me! I loved the sketch and just started putting all kinds of bits and pieces together, including the cute little snowman!

Thanks Karen. I agree - I love Coastal Cabana but haven't used it much on my Christmas cards, yet it works so well with red I really should use this colour combo more often!

Thanks Kim - I wouldn't have thought these colours would look so good together, but they have a real Christmassy feel, I think.
