Dynamic Duos #29

Hello my friends,

It's raining here in L.A. and I love it!  I stayed home all day, did some scrapbooking and created a card for this week's Dynamic Duos #29 challenge.  I love this week's color combo, it's the perfect combination for a Snowman's theme!



My card:



The base of the card is Whisper White, followed with Black cardstock then Marina Mist cardstock(embossed with Snow Burst Embossing Folder).  I kept my card clean and simple, not adding any ribbon or bling - I wanted to do something a bit different.  The cute Snowman and the words "Snow Much Fun!" is from the same title, SU Snow Much Fun Stamp Set.  This was my very 1st Stamp Set I purchased from SU that was Christmas theme, and it's one of my favorites!  I just love all the cute images.  I used Prismacolor pencils to color the Snowman.  At the last minute, I decided to only use the words "Snow Much Fun" instead of the entire phrase, so I cut 3 squares for each word and added black cardstock. I also matted each word with orange cardstock and skewed them so they would stand out! 
Thanks so much for stopping by,

  1. This is adorable, Martha. ;-) Your coloring looks fantastic, and I love how you blocked the words to the side. The embossed background is a lovely touch. Glad you could join Dynamic Duos this week. ;-)
