Christmas 2020- Don't Stop Believin'


So Many Snowflakes Dies

This card combines two of my favorite things- the Don't Stop Believin' stamp set and a sense of humor.
This year has been a rough one, even for Frosty.  He is a hot mess, just like the rest of us!

The items used for this card-


Thick whisper white cardstock for base, cut 5 ½" x 8 ½", scored at 4¼"
Specialty paper of your choice, cut 4" x 5 ¼"
Seaside spray cardstock, 2 pieces cut 4" x 5 ¼"
Whisper White cardstock, cut 3 ¾" x 5"

Stamps and Dies:
Snowflake Wishes stamp set and So Many Snowflakes Dies
Don't Stop Believin' stamp set
Tasteful Labels Dies

Stampin' Blends to color the snowman and mug
Computer and Printer 

The cover:
  • Use the snowflake window die centered on the specialty paper then adhere it to the front of your cardbase. 
  • Stamp the melted snowman (only) with Memento Black and color with Stampin' Blends.
  • I used my computer to print the "Christmas 2020" and "Even Frosty is a hot mess!" on whisper white cardstock. Use the label die of your choice to cut them out. I used the dies from Tasteful Labels for both.  I duplicated the larger label die with Cherry Cobbler cardstock and offset it to create an accent.  Carefully ink the spilled mug and stamp it to the side of your sentiment, coloring with the blends.  
  • Cut the snowflake from from Seaside Spray cardstock and adhere as shown.  Add some Wink of Stella to make it shimmer. 

For the inside:
  • Cut the large snowflake from the middle of one of your Seaside Spray pieces, then adhere to the top portion of the inside. 
  • Stamp the "Sadly, Frosty's first hot cocoa turned out to be his last" from the stamp set onto the whisper white.  I also stamped Merry Christmas in Cherry Cobbler from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set but you can use any that you wish. I surrounded the sentiment with snowflakes from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.  Center it on the Seaside Spray piece and adhere both to the cardbase.
Now for my little secret... sometimes the best creations come from making a "mistake".  When I first made this card, the blending markers bled through the cardbase making a light mark on the inside.  That's when I decided to use the large snowflake cut out of cardstock on the inside of the cover.  I loved this unique look.  Never be afraid of making a mistake, let it be part of the creative experience!
