Let It Snow with LDRS Creative!
Posted on November 25 2018
Hello everyone! Melissa here to share another simple Holiday make. Today, I will go through the simple step by step for the card shown above! Remember, if you don't have circle dies in your stash, you can always use other shaped dies.
First, I started with the cutest little snowman from the Hot Chocolate Stamp Set. I love this set because it has so many elements that you can pair together or use independently. I stamped the snowman in Raven hybrid ink and colored him with alcohol markers. I then paired him with paper from the 6x6 paper pad, Holly Jolly Holidays. Isn't this snowman paper just adorable!!!
Once he was stamped and colored, I cut my snowman paper to 4 x 5 1/4 inch and a piece of red shimmer paper to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch. Then I chose two old circle dies in my stash, one slightly larger than the other.
I die cut the snowman paper first with the largest die, being careful to center this on the upper center portion of my paper. After, I centered my snowman paper onto my red shimmer paper and used low tack tape to adhere my small circle die into the center of the red paper. The snowman paper acts as a guide so my inner circle is not off center.
Once the paper was cut, I grabbed an A2 card base to begin layering my pieces and finishing my card.
I adhered the snowman piece behind the red shimmer first with adhesive so the snowman would show centered in the circle. I then added that whole piece to the base of my card. Next, I adhered the snowman paper with adhesive to the red shimmer.
I decided to finish my card with the sentiment from the Hot Chocolate Stamp Set that says Winter Magic. I also added a bit of sky with my alcohol markers and finished the scene with some little white dots to look like snow.
I hope you liked today's simple holiday card! This is another one easy to mass produce for those simple and fun cards for Christmas.
