Advice from a Snowman

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the current challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches – it’s a fabulous sketch and perfect for quick and easy cards.

As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use the fabulous new Snowman Advice stamp by Newton’s Nook. I thought I could pair it with some snowman patterned paper, if I had some…. so I went to my paper mountain and found at least SIX different snowman designs! Honestly! SIX!!!

I just had to choose a Basic Grey design. Isn’t it cute? I miss Basic Grey so much. I have many fond memories of being in the Craft Barn in Lingfield back in the day, choosing 12×12 sheets from their new releases…. at least I still have my own Basic Grey mini paper mountain in my craft room!

Anyway, onto the card. I embossed the wording and then blended Altenew and distress inks over it, before wiping the excess from the embossing.

I cut a rectangle of patterned paper and adhered both to my card base. Super quick and simple! I may use this design for some of the Christmas cards I have left to make!

Thanks for stopping by!
