Stenciled Christmas

So behind on Christmas cards this year. I need to pick up the pace or I won't be ready for Christmas cards this year. So I have a card that I made for a couple challenges.


I used the Simon Says stencil and inked it with Versa Mark ink and then added the gold embossing powder to make the night sky. I added a red edge to match the snowman's coat. I embossed the sentiment with the same gold embossing powder and cut it into a banner. The snowman is embellished with Clear Stickles. The snowman image is from From the Heart Stamps called Catching Flakes. I colored him with Copic markers. I used the sketch from i {heart} card sketch with a twist. The twist is cute, cute, cute. I'm not sure if I got the twist in or not. What do you think?



I am entering these challenges:
I gave away all the fudge I made on Monday to the Girl Scout leaders this evening. It's out of my refrigerator. Yeah! I do have some brownies left since I had to bring a dessert but not very many. I received the Leadership of Excellence award. Over 20 years of volunteering for Girl Scouts. I still love working with the girls even though I don't have a daughter in a troop anymore.
Stay tuned! I have just finished posting over 1000 blog posts. So that deserves some candy I think. I'll get something together and post very soon! Stay tuned. Have an awesome Friday and hope you have a crafty weekend!

Well done on your milestone 1000 posts! I love the gold stars embossing. Really made this pretty card such a standout. The starry dark background is a perfect backdrop for this cute snowman, and the red & blue made the design fairly pop! Happy wkend, TFS
