A Simple Winter Snowman Card!


Hi everyone.  Ok the clock is ticking and I need to get started on my Holiday cards!
7 Weeks to go until Christmas.
I created a  quick and easy Cass Card.
I will be reproducing this card a lot!
I need to send most of my cards some distance and so I need something that is
easy to pop in the mail.
I also need to create 80 cards for my County's Foster Children's Holiday party.
Each child sits down and writes a thank you note to the family that provided them with their gifts.
Hence -  80+ Holiday cards are in order.
I will get the final count soon!   LOL


Snowman (Inkakinkado)
Music Notes (Recollections)
Copic Alcohol Ink Markers
Opaque White ink (Copic .too)
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger)


My designer layer was Neenah Ivory and I stamped the music notes
on the paper, trimmed and then sponged the edges lightly
with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
For a fun TipI wrapped some Baker's Twine around my designer
I threaded the twine through the look at the top.
This allows the tag to have
I did not adhere the tag to the designer paper with
I just let it swing from the twine.


Copic Opaque White Ink was applied using a stylus.
I find that this allows my dots to be more dimensional than when I
use a brush.    I like both techniques.


I also  applied some Opaque White Copic Ink to the snowman and his hat and scarf.


So here is my little snowy fella!
Hope you will give it a try.   It's fun, easy and will go through the mail
without requiring EXTRA postage!
Now that is always a plus!
