Today the temperatures outside have plummeted and it looks as though some snow may be on the horizon for the realm. I found myself in the crafting chambers with a cozy fire burning in the hearth to stave off the chill, and couldn’t resist sketching some blueprints for a snowman should we get enough of the white stuff to construct one.
I started this card by stamping the snowman image using the Tim Holtz “Christmas Blueprint” set and colouring him with Distress Markers. I then ran a gluestick over the entire image and glued a used dryer sheet overtop.
I tried to add some glitter (hoping it would stick to the gluestick glue), but only a few flecks actually stayed stuck; most of it just fell off. On the main panel, I stamped the sentiment with the Tim Holtz “Christmas Memories” set and embossed it with a pearly white embossing powder. It didn’t make it as white as I wanted it, but it still looks okay.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Biggie Christmas Sentiments” set and added the bell that was from a cheap Recollections brand set.
The envelope was stamped with some snowflake flourishes using another Recollections brand set.
This card will freshen up and make the following challenges less staticy:

After my sketch was complete, I wandered down to the kitchens to make myself some tea and hope that spring would finally come and maybe stay for a month or two.
