A Case Gone Bad



I was late getting into the craft room today after going out to lunch, then buying groceries but wanted to do a card for the Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers. I almost never get to do this challenge. Well, it all went wrong. I had the card made and started to photograph when I noticed a boo boo. I didn't have time to do another just like it so I did a much simper version. As you can see if you click on the link below, I  just did a CAS and did only the middle part of her card.

Here is the card I was trying to case.

I made the ring with the snowmen by cutting two of the Spellbinders Blossom Three dies placed together for cutting and it left this section. I stamped the snowmen and colored them. Added my sentiment and snowflakes (not following the rules...as three snowflakes just didn't work).

I see the embossing on my ribbon banner is not showing. Ugh! I think I had too much light on it.

Recipe:
Stamps-Hot off the Press/Christmas Words, Snowman peg stamp
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler, gray cs/Hobby Lobby
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Copics, Spellbinders Blossom Three die cuts, Spellbinder Shapeabilities ribbon banners, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Martha Stewart Polar Stamp and Punch (snowflake punch)

I love the snowmen in the wreath, Benzi! You may have had a particular card in your head but this one is magnificent in its own right. Love the red and white combo.

Bad...I don't think so! You made it your own and it looks festive and fabulous! I'm a snowman junkie so anything with a snowman on it is wonderful!

Have a great week! Happy Thanksgiving!

Well lookie here all this red. Shall we saw "Roll Tide"....lol Good game on Saturday for sure. I was home by myself and watched it. I also caught the Notre Dame game as that is my youngest son's team. Gator's were good too-all an all a great day for college football....lol Some exciting games coming up-Santa please let Alabama beat the Georgia Bull Dogs....lol

Now for your card, those snowmen are just darling. The look like they are dancing around the die cut. I love that design feature. This is so cute. Love it.

Bear Hugs,
Carol
