CAS Christmas May Reminder – Snowman

Hi everyone.  Just a quick reminder that there’s one week left to enter your CAS Snowman Christmas card into our May challenge at CAS Christmas.

 

 

So I didn’t think I had any snowman dies, but while going through my supplies for another project, I came across this Winter Scene Border die.  Since I love rainbow colors any time of the year, I created this soft simple rainbow colour Christmas card.

 

 

First, two rectangle stick frames were die cut from a scrap of mix media paper.  Watercolor block stamping was used to create the background by scribbling Zig markers in rainbow colours on an acrylic stamping block, spritzing with water then stamping onto one of the rectangles.  It was set aside to dry.  The other rectangle was die cut with the snowman border die.

 

 

Initially, I was going to stack the two white stick frames, but then decided to add some sparkle and die cut a frame from a scrap of silver foil sheets.  The sentiment was silver heat embossed on a white stitched rectangle panel.  The elements were assembled on the panel before it was mounted onto a white top folding card base.  Clear shimmer added to the rainbow background finished off the card.

 

 

Hope to see your CAS snowman card in our gallery.  For more inspirations from our talented guest Barb and my team, click HERE.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!
