Merry Christmas Eve


Merry Christmas Eve everyone.  Today, Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring The Crazy Challenge.  The challenge is Easel Cards.  I will admit, this is my first easel card.  Now that I have made it, I know what to do differently.  I made the inside piece to long.  I should have made it much shorter.


This is the new Snowman Pin Up image from Sassy Studio Designs.  Isn't she adorable.  I made this card for my mother-in-law.   I hope she likes it.  I colored the image with Copics, cut it out and popped it up with SU dimensionals.  I used a Martha Stewart punch on the inside piece.  I used some glitter glue on the scarf, hat and boots.  I also used glass effects here and there.  

This is my favorite part.  When I was a preteen, I did a lot of wax stamping.  I still enjoy doing it so I thought I would start adding it to my cards.  Typically, I use it to seal my envelopes.  I have no idea what happened to all the wax stamps I had when I was young.  I wish I had them all back.  The "S" that I used here not only stands for snow but it is my MIL's initial.  

Please head over to SSD and to The Crazy Challenge.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day and a very Merry Christmas.
