Spirited Snowmen – Love Never Melts

Happy Sunday!  It will be a day filled with cardmaking…and I am working through a few challenges.

Over at Double Trouble (#97B), they have partnered with the Try Stampin’ On Tuesday team to use the Sketch (#533) for a Peek-a-Boo Card Style.  For the theme, I selected the current Make My Monday (#162) suggestion.

Here is the result:

SPIRITED SNOWMEN – WINTRY 3D EF – PATTERN PARTY DSP – DTC97B – TSOT533 – MMM162
SPIRITED SNOWMEN – CURVY CHRISTMAS – DTC97B – TSOT533 – MMM162

Steps:

  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
    • A Peek-a-Boo opening was die-cut into the card front with the (1⅞”) circle die from the Layering Circles Dies set.
    • A Pool Party card stock Circle Frame (2⅛”) was die-cut using both the (2⅛”) and (1⅞”) circle dies and added to the Peek-a-Boo opening.
    • The sentiment, Love Never Melts, from the retired Spirited Snowmen stamp set was added with Bermuda Bay ink under the opening.
  • Side Panel: (2” x 4”) Basic White cardstock dry-embossed with the Snowflake Wintry 3D Embossing Folder
  • Accent Trim (Tape): (½” x 4”) Colorful Hearts patterned piece of paper from the Hostess Pattern Party Designer Series Paper pack used as a mock Washi Tape instead of Twine because I did not want to cover the embossed snowflakes.
  • Peek-a-Boo Image: The Snowmen Couple image from the Spirted Snowmen stamp set was stamped inside the card beneath the opening with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
    • The Couple was then colored with a variety of Watercolor Pencils: Granny Apple Green, Real Red, Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Early Espresso and Balmy Blue to match the patterned paper.
    • A Blender Pen was used to smooth out the colors creating a soft Watercolor effect.
    • Pool Party ink Snowflakes were added to the scene using the Snowflake stamp from the same stamp set.
    • The sentiment, May your days…, from the retired Curvy Christmas stamp set was added with Bermuda Bay ink to complete the inside of the card.

Spirited Snowmen is one of my all-time favorite stamp sets.  The characters are so cute and they always make me smile when I see them.

  1. Jolanda, what a super cute Christmas card! A great peek-a-boo feature for Double Trouble, and fun interpretation of Try Stampin’ on Tuesday’s sketch! I like how your window see’s the two snow people hugging, then show’s an entire scene when you open the card! Thank you for sharing your creativity once again with both of us!!! -Donna
