Blue Christmas

Oh wow...I started typing up this post and like always the television is on and a commercial came on for Domino's pizza and they were showing their new Pasta in a bread bowl - wowzers do they ever look good. How the heck am I supposed to get skinny with that kind of food being released!!! I had a hankerin' today to spend some time in the kitchen, so I whipped up some potato salad, some macaroni salad, some nanaimo bars and a blue berry cheese cake. I don't do a whole lot of cooking, my husband seems to enjoy it, so I let him do his "thang". But every once in a while, I like to strap on the apron and whip up some goodies!

I whipped up this card yesterday. It will be one that my class will be making on May 25th when they come to my Christmas Card class. I like to make Christmas cards that do not use the typical Christmas colours (red and green). So this one is done with blue and white.

The base of this card is Bashful Blue card stock. I used the set we got at Regionals to stamp some random snowflakes. The next layer is Bashful Blue coloured using the Direct to Paper technique. The top edge was paper pierced and the bottom edge was shaped using the scalloped edge punch. White dots were drawn in using the white gel pen. The white layer was embossed using the Stampin' Up! texture plate. The snowman image was stamped on Whisper White card stock and coloured using the Stampin' Write markers. The snowman was then cut out and popped up on top of the original image. Blue ribbon was tied under the image for an embellishment.

Half pearls from the Pretties kit were placed in a couple of spots on the card. You can see how the snowman is popped up as well as the dots from the texture plates.
Thanks for stoppin' in ,
Chow for now
