Taylored Expressions: All Shook Up Snowman

It's July and I don't have a single Christmas card done!  And I think it's really sad that I just strung "July" and "Christmas" in a single sentence!!  I decided I need to start working my way through my Christmas NBUS stash before all the new Christmas products start coming out!  I also had so much fun making yesterday's shaker card (after my belated discovery of foam adhesive sheets - see yesterday's post for a full description!) that I started my July Christmas card push with a snowman shaker.

I made the background using a narrow brayer.  There are actually three strips - the top is a darker ink. The next two are the same color - just rolled off once for the bottom.

He made me smile.  And seeing him is helping me to survive the 90+ degree weather this week (I HATE HEAT).  Hopefully you are feeling just a bit cooler too!



  1. Love the shaker snowman tummy and the sweet and simple background. I am also doing Christmas in July cards. I invite you to link up your CIJ cards to my blog if you want to. No reward other than the satisfaction of getting a head start on our Christmas cards!

  2. What a great way to start your Christmas card collection! This snowman is absolutely adorable, and I love that you've made him a shaker. Those blues are gorgeous, too. Christmas card perfection! Happy 4th. Bev
