Snow Much Fun!


I love doing the Rudolph Days challenge hosted by ScrappyMo at the end of each month.  Today I finally am doing this card design I have been thinking of for a while.   I wanted to channel my inner Andy Warhol with this  small snowman postage stamp from I Brake for Stamps.

I stamped it 4 times and then colored in with my water-based markers.  I feel like it turned out fun, especially with the sentiment, which reads,

"Hope Your Christmas... Is Snow Much Fun!"

**A note on the embossing folder from Martha Stewart crafts.  It looks like any other folder, but they call them Embossing Plates and it must be thicker than most embossing folders.  When I tried using the regular sandwich in my Cuttlebug, it was definitely NOT going to go through.  So I changed the sandwich to A plate, embossing plate with cardstock in it, 2 sheets of chipboard and my C plate.  Maybe use that as a starting point if you ever try this brand.
