Merry Monday # 54


 I'm on a roll participating in the Merry Monday challenge for a 2nd week in a row. It's also nice to take a break from all the Easter cards/ projects I have made the past few weeks. Still not done, but getting there.
Now for the challenge. Create a card with a snowman on it.


 I chose to go a different route with my card. I used the PTI Tag Sale # 4 and rustic white card stock as my card base. Since so many of my recipients mention they hang on to my cards, I thought it would work as an ornament too. The tag sale is embossed with the Striped IP. (You can barely see it in my photo)

 The ribbon was added at the last minute to give it a more polished look.The snowglobe/snowman is from PTI's Winter Snowglobe stamp set and die.

Clear acetate stamped with glue and glittered was laid over the snowman die cut.


 I had to stick some snowflakes on the inside because when I stamped the sentiment some ink got on the card. I'll probably add a 3rd snowflake for balance once the card is signed.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

your card in itself is a gift where the recipient can hang the tag on the tree or re-purpose it for another gift! Very pretty!
