I hope you enjoy my little creation today. Actually, for me, it is a rather large creation! I usually make an A2 (4 1/4x5 1/2in) card because, well, you can make 2 out of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. But friends of mine are having a yard sale to help raise money for their adoption of a little boy from Haiti and I have been helping price items. A benefit to helping out is that I get a preview of all the stuff. There were a couple partial packages of blank cards and matching envelopes that I snatched up (I gave them a donation, of course) So, this card is made with one of those bases and is 6 1/2 x 5. I also snagged some glimmer mists, Stampin' up cardstock, stampin' pastels, basic black ink pad, and heat and stick powder. Does anyone know what exactly you used Heat n' Stick poweder for? If you do, please let me know in the comments. I'd really appreciate it.
Now, on to the card details. The challenge this week at Christmas Stampin All Year Long is to use a stamp that hasn't seen much ink. There is no sponsor this week, but there is still a prize: a guest designer spot for a week in August! How fun is that? I got this snowman set (Let it snow from Gina K. Designs) a couple of months ago and had not even cut it apart. I will definitely be using it a lot from now on: this little guy is soooo cute! The sentiment is also from the same set. Thanks for stopping by and if you haven't already, head over to the CSAYL
blog and check out the challenge and the other Design Team members' creations.
