It's a little hard to think "Christmas in July" especially with all the hot humid weather we've been having LOL! But that's what the Design Team is doing over on the High Hopes Blog! Lora has opened the vault and re-released a fun Christmas collection. What better time to get a jump start on your Christmas cards then now, when we are spending time cool in the house with the A/C on! Snowmen are one of my favourite Christmas/Winter images and this darling is called "Let's Skate" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.
I decided to use papers from a very old Bo Bunny collection called "Snowfall". I've been hoarding it for years, as I love the blues and brown tones together. After stamping my image onto Copic friendly paper, I coloured the image to match my papers. I took a White gel pen and added some fun polka dots to her hat and mitts. Next using a stitched oval die, I cut out the coloured image. I decided to ink all the edges of my papers with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to add more interest and dimension. Some snowflakes with the High Hopes "Think Snow" sentiment add to my card design. Everything ties together with the ribbon and matching enamel dots.
