LIM: A Snowman Family

Our church card-making group has a special gathering in two weeks to get a head start on holiday cards...so that's about all you will see on my blog for a few weeks. 

This week's Less Is More challenge is to use the colors of our flags.  I knew that our red, white and blue could easily become a snowman and, just yesterday, I had received an order of stamps from DeNami Designs...a card was born!
  


COLOURS 
of 
YOUR NATION'S FLAG!
  • Stamps: snowpeople by DeName Designs, sentiment by Taylored Expressions (Wings of Joy)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Real Red and white
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Real Red, Night of Navy, Only Orange
  • Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Stickles, red gem
This is my second post today...go to the next Older Post for FIVE simple baby cards!
