Hi everyone! I really wanted to dazzle all of you with a project I am working on for teacher's gifts, but as you all know, it's a busy time of year and I simply didn't have time to complete it before today's post. Instead, I am posting this holiday card.
I like the idea of juxtaposing images to look like they are coming off the page. It's like Frosty is popping up from the lower left corner onto the card to wish you Happy Hollydays!!
To make this card, I stamped the face from Peachy Keen stamps onto a piece of white cardstock, cut it out with a circle punch and colored his cheeks with a Tombow marker.. I cut a second circle slightly larger than the first. I used an Exacto knife for the hat and the holly was created with my Silhouette. I positioned everything on the card just the way I wanted it and proceeded to glue it onto the base. I cut off the part of the circle that was hanging off the page. Then I embellished Frosty with a piece of ribbon for a scarf and gave him some arms made of twine. The sign is made with a sentiment from Joy's Life. He's no fancy schmancy teacher's gift, but I still think he came out cute.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. I love this time of year, even though it's busy, busy, BUSY!
