Most of my stamps if have purchased through the AWESOME Stampin’ Up! Not only do they have fantastic ideas, they supply everything you need! A few of stamps were purchased from a small shop which has since closed. I have also found some of the cute “mice” stamps online. As I have been stamping for years, I have many supplies already on hand.
For this project I used:
Blue Card Stock 4 1/4″ X 11″
Green Card Stock 5 1/2″ X 2 1/2″
Brown Card Stock 4 1/4″ X 1/2″
White Card Stock 4 1/4″ X 1 3/4″
Black Stamp Pad
Assorted Water Colors & Brush (I used an Aqua Painter)
Fake Snow (use whatever you like)
Tiny Twigs (I cut mine form a grapevine wreath)
Green Thread (optional. I only did it on a few as it was time consuming)
Foam Dots or Tape (double sided adhesive foam)
Score (crease) blue card stock in half to make a 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ card. Mark center of hole in green card stock at 2″ from edge length wise, 1 1/4″ from edge width wise. Punch hole with 1 3/4″ circle punch. If desired, sew down each long side of green card stock with green thread. Ink only the words “Let it” Stamp on top edge of green card stock. Into “Sweet Treat Cups” put a scant tablespoon of fake snow. Remove tape from cup. Place in hole of green card stock glue side up. Align carefully with blue card stock prior to pressing Sweet Treat Cup firmly down.
Stamp “SNOW” onto white card stock. Paint to your desired colors. Trim each letter and the snowman from card stock. Glue letters to green card stock. Place foam dot onto the back of snowman and carefully position over Sweet Treat Cup. Glue twigs snug against the Sweet Treat Cup.
Punch both sides of brown card stock (if it doesn’t align perfectly it will most likely still look nice!). Glue onto card and voila!
You can purchase special envelopes that will fit your card or do as I did, wrap in bubble wrap and place into a small manila envelope.
Happy crafting to you!
