Fill Your Heart with Joy - SNSDC83

This week's challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog is an easy one.  We'd like to see you make a Christmas card.  The only requirement is that you have to use digi stamps.  If you use Sweet 'n Sassy digi stamps you may be chosen to be spotlighted on the blog during next week's challenge.



I chose to use this happy snowman on my card this week.  I used this week's sketch from SCS (SC414) for the card design.  It really came together quickly.  The finished card is 4.25" x 5.5" and the squares on the front are 2 3/8".  I embossed the background panel with the Cuttlebug embossing folder and matted it on a piece of dark blue cardstock.  I colored the Smiley Snowman with markers and fussy cut him.  I gave him a couple black pearls for buttons.  A few rhinestones were added to some of the snowflakes.  Even with the rhinestones and pearls, it is still pretty flat so it shouldn't require extra postage to mail.



For the interior, I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments set and added a couple punched hearts. 

Supplies:
Cardstock:  Express-it, Georgia Pacific, The Paper Company
Patterned Paper:  Bo Bunny (Snowfall)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Smiley Snowman, Christmas Sentiments, Christmas Greetings)
Markers:  Copics (B000, B21, B23, B26, N0, 0), Bic Mark-it (Misty Blue)
Embellishments/Tools:  pearls (Queen & Co.), rhinestones (Recollections), Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Snowflakes), heart punch (EK Success)
