Holiday Happiness

When I was trying to think of a card to stamp tonight it occurred to me that I hardly ever used this little snowman from the Perfect Presentation Level II Hostess set. And since this set, along with all other current hostess sets, is slated for retirement January 1, I decided this would be the snowman's night!

I stamped the image three times in blue bayou ink on whisper white card stock, trimmed each image out and layered it onto a mat of sky blue. I cut a mat of whisper white card stock 1/4" smaller in each direction than my blue bayou card base and stamped it with a background from itty bitty backgrounds. I then arranged the three snowmen on a diagonal on the whisper white layer, overlapping them in the lower right hand corner.

To fill up the space in the lower left hand corner I stamped a sentiment from the So Many Sayings Level I hostess set in blue bayou ink on sky blue card stock and punched it out with the word window punch. I layered it onto a piece of blue bayou card stock punched with the large oval punch and adhered the whole thing to the whisper white layer. I added a cheater bow in the upper right hand corner. As a final touch, I punched the corners of the whisper white layer with the designer label punch (See this post for a tutorial). I adhered the whisper white layer to the blue bayou card base and I was done.

It's a happy little card. You can't help but feel holiday happiness when you look at the three grinning snowmen!
