Hello, Winter Card

I LOVE winter, but I'm very glad that I now live in Arizona and get only a little bit of snow each year, and not the mounds that I grew up with in Nebraska!!!  I enjoy working with images that bring back memories of those fun times in the snow as a child.  The stamp set "Hello, Winter" from CTMH  has such great images on it - and the sentiment works for Christmas, winter, or even switch things up a bit and it can be made into a birthday card!  This card - both versions of it - was created using the sketch over at the Paper Players Challenge Blog, but I missed the deadline to enter over there by a couple of hours.  However, I incorporated elements from two other challenges - the embossed snowflake background works with the challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper and the fact that it is masculine card works with Merry Monday's challenge. 

So here's a list of what I used on these cards - all from CTMH unless indicated
Hello, Winter (C1658)
Merry & Bright (retired) - Christmas sentiment
Colonial White cardstock
Desert Sand cardstock
Sea Glass cardstock
Desert Sand
Saddle (sentiment stamped on the Sea Glass banner needed to be a little darker)
Sea Glass
Snowflakes Embossing Folder (Z400)
Sponge dauber for inking edges
Nestabilities Labels Four dies

I should mention that the Hello, Winter stamp set and the snowflakes embossing folder are found in the CTMH Holiday Expressions catalog, and if you like them, you only have until the end of December to order them.  But they are available only while supplies last, so act soon if you want them!  You can find them on my CTMH website if you are interested.

Be sure to pop over to the two challenge blogs that these cards are entered in - Merry Monday and Stamp Ink Paper.  Enjoy the other great projects people have shared.

Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your weekend and stay warm!

These are wonderful cards Gail. The stamped images are beautiful and the neutral colour theme make them look so elegant and classy. Such an amazing amount of white space....just perfect for a CAS card. xx
