I'm sharing a card that I made for several challenges. The challenge that really jump started this card is the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Keen On Neon. Rarely do I use neon colors on my projects/cards...but the inspiration that Cath provided was simply irresistible, so I just had to give it a try!
I'm using the colors from Color Throwdown CTD220. SO pretty, and perfect for going neon.
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C #165 - Create a card that features a snowman.
The Paper Players Challenge #124, Ann's Theme Challenge - Snowmen
I recently saw a tri-fold card made by Julie Ebersole, on Ellen Hutson's Classroom. That card inspired me to make this card.
I embossed the snowflakes in turquoise, citron and cherry after die cutting a window in the front of my card. From there, I knew where to place my die cut, snowman stamped, panel (matted in cherry). I colored the little guy's hat and scarf in cherry, also. Then added a bit of stickles to the pom pom and trim of his cap.
I stamped a sentiment inside the card, on that center panel.
This card was a little difficult to photograph. It refused to stay closed! You'll see in one of the photos that I got a little help from one of my snowman decorative figures. It worked!
Thanks for taking a look today!
