Snowballs For Sale

 The retirement vault has opened and the Christmas in July release is available and in the High Hopes store! I am so excited for this re-release and the best part is I can officially say I have started my 2021 Christmas cards! 

I love making and giving Christmas cards and I have quite a few people on my card giving list that love snowmen so "Snowman Stack" was the perfect stamp to start my cards with. How fun are these snowmen!!!! 

After I stamped my image I coloured it using Copic markers and cut it out with a handstitched nesting die. I found some patterned paper that was perfect to go with my stamp and the colours I used. I added a stitched snow hill behind them and used some of the trimmed pieces from the patterned paper to add a few pieces to the sides. I love the snowflakes on this paper! 
I love a little bit of sparkle on my Christmas cards so I added Star Dust Stickles to the snowballs and top of the shovel and sign. Next I cut some snow flakes out of a border die from matching sparkly paper and added some glitter dots to finish off my card.
