Christmas Stand Up Card

Hi Friends.  Have heard from a few blogging friends that weathered Hurricane Irma in Florida last week and so happy to hear that they are okay.  Praying for those who have lost everything and are trying to put their lives back together, cannot even image the stress they are going through.

I've made a Christmas Stand Up Card with some adorable snowmen.

Card Closed

Card Opened

OH NO, forgot to color his nose and rosy cheeks!

Stamp Set (including both sentiments - Inky Antics Sweety Snowman #1 (10913LC)
Background paper from my Stash (old)
Snowflake die - Sizzix, Tim Holtz (14 different snowflakes in the set)
Snowflake Centers - Want to Scrap
Snowflake Border - Martha Stewart Punch
Candies were cut from a piece of designer paper and coated
with WOW clear Sparkley embossing powder
Card is cut from Kraft
Card is 6 x 12 inches
Folded will fit into a 5x7 envie
Scored at 2 inches, and four inches on either end
The two inch score lines are Valley folds
The four inch score lines are Mountain folds
Mark down from the top of the card on either end 3 inches
Line up the three inch mark with the four inch score line
at the top and cut
Fold score lines and decorate.

Did you notice that the little snowman
with the mug had no rosy cheeks and his carrot
nose didn't get colored?.  I have since fixed that
but didn't want to retake the pictures!

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later......

Hello stamping friends.  A quick post to share a card I made recently.  I am loving these Penny Black scene stamps.  Lots of videos on you tube to show you how they are done.

By changing the colors you use for the sky, it could be a nighttime or sunset scene.
