Hot Cocoa and Snowfolk!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Snowman Cup Of Love – S149 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Dot Warm Heart – G117 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Hot chocolate is one of my favourite drinks during cold winter days. It looks like it is for this snowman too!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base of AC Cardstock – White cut and scored to be 6″ x 6″. I cut the background paper from Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones cardstock to the same size as the base and used double-side tape to apply it directly to it. Pebbles – Winter Wonderland paper was cut to the size of 5.75″ x 5.75″ and inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mermaid Lagoon. I applied this directly to the main background using double-sided tape. I cut 2 more strips from the Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones paper at 6″ x 1.5″ and 6″ x .75″ and applied them midway across the card using double-sided tape.

The image and sentiment were stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I die-cut the sentiment using my Cuttlebug and Hero Arts – Infinity Dies – Rounded Rectangle and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mermaid Lagoon. This was popped up on the card using 3M double-sided tape. The image was die cut with Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Ovals and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mermaid Lagoon. I coloured in the image in with Copic markers and popped it up on the card using 3M double-sided tape. Lastly, I added some Clear Glitter Glue to the bottom of the snowman to create some snow. You can’t see it in this picture, but I also added Wink of Stella – Clear to make the snowman sparkle too!
