Best of Snow Notecards


Greetings on this Tuesday morning, my stampy friends! How are you all coming along with your Holiday to-do list? I'm done decorating, mostly done shopping, and have just a few cards left to mail. I'll be sharing my last minute Christmas projects the rest of this week. Then I will need to start thinking about things like baking and Christmas Eve dinner, which is at my house! 

These little notecards are going to hold gift cards and will be mailed to my two nephews. They are super simple cards which feature the Best of Snow stamp set and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.


I thought the layout at The Deconstructed Sketch was perfect for featuring these cute little images.


For the hedgehog card, I used Season of Style Designer Series Paper. Isn't this image adorable?


My little hedgehog also works for the challenge at Merry Monday this week, which is to include an animal of some sort on your Christmas card.


The snowman card uses Winter Frost paper. The images for both were stamped in Black Stazon Ink and colored in with Ink Pads and a Blender Pen. The oval shapes and banners were cut with Framelits.


Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets: Best of Snow, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Whisper White, Real Red
Designer Series Paper: Season of Style, Winter Frost
Ink Pads: Black Stazon, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Note Cards & Envelopes
Tools: Big Shot, Ovals Collection and Bitty Banner Framelits, Blender Pen

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
