Snowy Christmas Wishes

Greetings and salutations! It's my turn to share a little somethin' somethin' over on the DeNami blog today. A few years ago I picked up a sweet dimensional snowman sticker at our A.C. Moore store on clearance after Christmas. He definitely takes center stage on this project, but I used my DeNami stamps (Christmas Wishes, Medium Polka Dots) to dress up this holiday card and bring an appropriately whimsical feel to the design. I love how the Medium Polka Dots stamped in white really stand out against the turquoise card base. Those sweet dots look like snow falling! And speaking of turquoise--red, turquoise, and white make such a fun combo for Christmas, don’t they?


Thanks so much for stopping for a visit today!
Emily

Loved this when I saw it over at DeNami, Emily! The punched piece with the sentiment is so creative & looks fabulous!

Your snowman card is so sparkly and special. I like the stamped snowflake border to go with him and the pretty polka dot background. I love using big stickers to create a fast card with big impact. It almost feels like cheating a little but in a good way! lol
