Last of the Cute Christmas Cards
Let's wrap up the Cute Christmas stamp set. The card above is based on one from the back of last year's Stampin' Up! mini catalog. That card had cut out snow men from a different stamp set. I did a lot of masking instead to take off one tree from a 3 tree stamp and add the snowman. Then I masked the trees and the snowman to do the background.
Why are they always snow "men" and not snow "women"? Just a random thought that popped into my head. Oh well!
And this one let me use several of the Cute Christmas stamps and Candy Cane papers:
Just about done getting my cards in the mail. The post office was being picky yesterday on postage wanting that extra 20 cents on anything with a 'bump' which is most anything I make!
The greeting on this last card is from the Christmas Punch set and it always gets that 'holly jolly' song in my head. Oh, here it goes again... Hope you have a Holly Jolly Friday!
