Can you believe it? September already, I hate to remind everyone, but Christmas is right around the corner. Today I'm posting on the Sparkles Christmas Challenge Blog. Before I tell you about my cards, I want to thank Crafty Ribbons. for sponsoring this month's challenge. One thing for certain, if you don't enter, you can not win.....so....remember the theme of this challenge is "No Man Like A Snowman".
Here's the prize....You have your choice of a bundle of ribbon or A Voucher. A reminder postage is paid by the winner. Check out the beautiful ribbons at: Crafty Ribbons.
The front of my card was fun to make. I colored the image quite some time ago. It's a Marianne stamp and it's too cute, don't you agree? I mounted it onto a Spellbinder die, backed by a Prima doily and edged the card with Poppystamps dies. I added glitter and a snowflake punched bottom border. My rubber stamped sentiment is from Stampin Up, probably retired as it's an old one and framed using Spellbinder circles.
And here is the inside:
I repeated papers from the outside, added a sentiment made by Stampabilities.
I made two cards this month...why? Well, I'm the featured designer and I thought that privilege deserved a little extra effort! So, here is card number 2.....
My rubber stamp is from Hero Arts and it's probably from back in 1997or 1998. It's always been one of my very favorite I love their happy little faces. I mounted them on Authentique papers added a punched border, a Memory Box snowfake and a bit of gold edged ribbon and this card is finished.
Again, I repeated papers from the outside, added my sentiment and this card is finished. By now you know, I always finish a card inside and out. Why? Because I don't want to have to dig for something to go inside. When I finish a project, I put everything away. I don't want to waste time trying to finish a card at the last minute.
I hope you will check out what the other Sparkles Design Team have created. And, I hope you will enter this month's challenge.
Until next time, Happy crafting,
