Simple Holiday card, it does not have to be Christmas.
P.S. Not sure why there is a shadow on the side of all the pics.
Here's what you will need:
Paper: Early Espresso, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso, Baja Breeze
Stamps: Four the Holidays, Tags til Christmas
Accessories: Early Espresso 5/8" Satin ribbon, Sweet Treat cup, Dazzling Diamonds, Petals a Plenty folder (Big Shot)
-Cut Early Espresso cardstock (long-ways) to make the card base
-Run a 4" x 5-1/2" piece of Baja Breeze cardstock through the Big Shot using the Petals a Plenty folder, Tab 2 and plates
-Punch 1-3/4" circle at the center point going as far down into the paper as the punch allows (mark on back at 2" and frame circle punch around).
-Stamp snowman stamp (Tags til Christmas set) on Whisper White scrap with Baja Breeze marker, excluding the "To, From" part
-Here's where it may get complicated... you can either punch the snowman out using the same 1-3/4" punch or leave as is
-Fill Sweet Treat cup with Dazzling Diamonds to be the "snow"
-Remove sticky backing and place on mirror
-Line up Snowman stamp on top of filled up and press to seal, ensure seals properly
-If you punched out the stamp- will just fit in place on sweet treat cup
-Adhere Whisper white treat cup to Baja Breeze or if punched- adhere straight to Early Espresso (ensure will line up with Baja Breeze)
DO NOT ADHERE BAJA BREEZE YET
-Cut 5-6" piece of Early Espresso 5/8" Satin ribbon
-Adhere to lower section of Baja Breeze wrapping around the back
-Stamp "Seasons Greetings" or other greeting from the Four the Holidays stamp set on 3"x 3/4" Whisper White scrap
- Adhere to Satin Ribbon
-Using Sticky strip, adhere Baja Breeze to Early Espresso (due to the texture, regular adhesive does not hold as well)
