Howdy fellow bloggers! Can you BELIEVE that it's October already? CRAZY!! Just plain crazy! I'm ready for the change in the weather, but not sure I'm ready for sending out my Christmas cards just yet. To add to the collection though, here is my card for the CHNC Extra challenge:
I had fun making this card! I've been on an embossing folder kick lately, as well as a kraft card stock kick. I picked out a bunch of folders from my collection, cut down some kraft to fit, and went to town! Since this folder has that lovely snowman on it, I thought adding some white ink would be perfect to enhance the embossing. I pounced and pounced my white ink pad all over the paper while it was still in the folder (to keep the dimension), and let it dry overnight. I didn't want to cover too much of this cute folder up, so I searched through my Bugaboo stash until I found the perfect image: BUGSMBLOCKS. If you click on the link to take you to the image, you will see that I cut it apart to use just the peeking fellow in the top right corner. My Silhouette Cameo came in quite handy for this. The snowman was colored with alcohol markers, and I added him to the upper right corner of my panel. The panel was added to a piece of bright blue card stock to match the colors used on the snowman image, and the whole shebang was added to a kraft cardstock base.
