The time has finally come, and I can show you the card I made as the guest designer at: Retro Rubber Challenge Blog. I am absolutely so grateful for this awesome opportunity to be able to share my card with you all. I went to work(play) right away trying to come up with a card that would fit the challenge, and as you can imagine it was a lot of fun.
I used the window die to give the appearance of looking out into the winter wonderland of SN❄W with and avalanche of snow hanging off the roof line, which is quite common here in WI. Sometimes the drifts off the roof can meet those SN❄W banks on the ground. I also added a cup of hot cocoa to warm things up while glancing at the cute SN❄W-man. Did you notice a few of the flakes were plastered to the window pane? I imagine that is so, because like our old house, there is poor insulation.. hence they stay put. haha.. any ways I thought I should also capture a picture with the card on my actually window sill. So very clever. As you can see there is some SN❄W in the background, but just wait until later this week when I share a few more SN❄W cards, and pictures of the yard.
We got a lot more of that fluffy wet white stuff.
On this card I used a snowflake embossing folder for the background, and the window die. The stamp sets are from stampin up and include: Snow Angels 1999 for the cup of cocoa. so sad because I don't have the whole set, just that little mug, 1997 Let it snow for the sentiment. 1998 Woosh Snowman set for the snowflakes and Best of SN❄W 2014.
I hope you like my card and that you will play along with the amazing team at Retro Rubber, it's truly a delightful blog, with amazing challenges.. and seriously don't we all have some older stamps that need a little love, now is the perfect time to bring them out, and let them shine. Please won't you join us in the Challenge.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Make sure to stop back this week because I will feature 5 more days of snow cards for inspiration. I look forward to seeing what YOU come up with.
By the way did you notice the reoccurring theme throughout my post? besides the poor grammar.. (haha) it would be the word SN❄W
😊Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping😊
