SCS Challenge

WOW! This was one tough challenge for me. I like the sketch but I didn't really know how to work with it. But after some thought I decided it HAD to be a winter card and to me a winter card means a snowman card!! And you all know how much I LOVE snowmen!!!!

I used the Snowflakes Cuddlebug folder. I only caught a "little bug!!!!" LOL I don't have a Cuddlebug machine but I do have my Sizzix with the adapter and it works just fine. If you are a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, for the background you can use the snowflake stamp that comes with the Cold Play set or you can use another snowflake set and stamp the snowflakes in Bashful Blue on the Whisper White card stock. Once I was done with the Cuddlebug Folder I used Bashful Blue ink on a rubber brayer and went over the piece allowing the ink to pick up on the raised snowflakes and of course some goes where you don't want it but it's ok, it is after all a handmade card!!! Then I added the layers as shown in the diagram they present each week at Split Coast Stampers (SCS). I added three light blue buttons and called it finished. Once I figured out what I wanted on the card it went smoothly. It's that trying to figure out what you want on it that is the most difficult part. So there you have it, my little snowman card!! Nice thing to make on such a HOT and HUMID day here in Minnesota. UGH!!!

Don't forget to leave your comment for the Blog Candy drawing to be held on Saturday!
