Lawnscaping Challenge 21, Thank you Card ...

Pin It
This week's challenge from Lawnscaping is to make a thank you project. I just got the Making Frosty Friends stamp set on Friday and I've been dying to use it! I was inspired by Lawnscaping's guest designer Jen McGuire's thank you card using Making Frosty Friends. So I figured combining Frosty Friends with the Hello Friend stamp set would make a super frosty themed thank you card!

I put a smidge of Copic BG000 Pale Aqua and B00 Frost Blue on some of the snowman's body edges and blended it like crazy with the blending marker to give it an every so slight icey look. The nose and hats were also Copic colored. I also got a spool of Doodlebug Christmas baker's twine from Simon Says Stamp's Ebay store last week and I've been trying to use it as much as I can before the holidays pass us by. I fashioned a scarf for the bigger snowman and a poof for the smaller snowman's hat. While I could of used the button stamp included in the stamp set, I chose to use tiny sticky backed pearls as the buttons for more dimension. For the snow I just freehand cut some hills, edged them with Tim Holtz's tumbled glass distress stain, and added some diamond stickles. ETA: I totally forgot I also used Hats Off to You for the large snowman's hat because I wanted it to be taller than the top hat that came with the Making Frosty Friends set.

Overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it too! I'm also super happy that it worked well for another challenge at Jay Gee's Nook! Jay Gee's challenge was to use holiday stamps to make a non-holiday themed card. Thanks so much for having a looksie!

Inky and glittery fingers (for real, I still have glitter stuck to my fingers as I type this) for all!
