Cards in Envy - Snow Buddy Like You!

Hello!  I hope Monday is being kind to you today.  It’s a happy day over at the Cards in Envy challenge blog because we’re starting off the year with a new challenge!  This time our theme is “Snow Buddy Like You”.  We want to see your cards showing images of snowmen (and/or snowwomen).  Remember that for our challenges, all cards must be A2 sized and cannot have lumpy, bumpy embellishments more than 1/4″ thick.

I’ve combined a snowman patterned paper with a large stamped snowman image and OWH Stars & Stamps bonus sketch #31.  I have to admit that when I made this card, I was in a rush to get it finished and mailed off in a shipment to Operation Write Home before their submission deadline for winter and valentine cards.  So I didn’t take the time to heat emboss the snowman.  As the white ink dried on the black cardstock, it ended up taking on a greyish hue similar to that in the designer paper.  Score!  The cherry red strip was dry embossed with a snowflake embossing folder.  I didn’t really have a good place to put a sentiment, so I opted to just not use one, making this more of an any-occasion card for one of our military men or women to use to write home to their loved ones.

If you need additional inspiration, please go check out the Cards in Envy site and see what the rest of the design team has made.  Then create a snowbuddy card and share it with us on the Cards in Envy site by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Sunday, January 19.  We’d love to have you play along with us!
