C4C-464 The last post of the year.

For the last challenge every year each team member chooses a sketch challenge from the 12 months to make a card for this last of the year challenge.  AND, so do you!  I chose the August sketch.

I love this digital stamp from The Paper Shelter.  It is called “Most Adorable Snowman”.  I just love the expression on this snowman’s face.

The Steps:

Step !:  Download, size and print the digital stamp.  Now color it with the medium of your choice.  I colored mine with Copic Markers.

Step 2:  Using Elizabeth Craft Designs:  1113 – Stitched Ovals

Cut your colored image out with the second largest oval in the set.

Step 2:  Nest the second largest oval inside the largest oval and tape to white cardstock in the nested position and run through your cutting machine to create an oval frame.  Do this step 3 times netting out 3 white oval frames.

Step 3:  Create a base card by scoring a 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of white cardstock.  Trim to 5.5″ x 7″.  Adhere a rectangle pc. of designer paper to the front of the base card that measures 5.25″ x 6.75 ” leaving a .25″ margin on all sides.

Step 4:  Open the card and position the same second large Oval over the front of the card leaving enough room on the bottom edge for a sentiment.  Run through your cutting machine.  Now glue one of the white oval frames around the cut oval.  Open the card.

Step 5:  Center the cut stamped image on the inside of the card so that it exactly matching the position on the front of the card.  Adhere to the inside left of the card so that it shows through the front of the card.  Adhere a white oval over both the right and left ovals.

Step 6:   Add a sentiment.  I used Elizabeth Craft Designs “Merry Christmas”.  I also added 3 snowflakes and some silver line peel off stickers to complete the sketch.

That’s it!

We hope you will choose one of the sketches and enter this last challenge of the year.  And don’t forget to come back on the first Saturday of January to start a new year of Challenges.  I think it’s fun to challenge our creativity and see what happens!  Here’s one last look at this adorable digital stamp which truly is “The Most Adorable Snowman”!
