Snow Day

Even though we haven't had our first snow storm yet, I could really use a snow day.  I better watch what I wish for or we might get more snow days then last year and I don't want that.  The work week is finally over, but this weekend is not going to be as relaxing as I hoped for.  I need to make 100 cards for a craft show next Saturday.  I am off to a good start though since I made 6 cards tonight instead one like I usually do.  Enough about me wanting a snow day, let's discuss tonight's creation.

Tonight's creation was inspired from Pinterest.  Using my trimmer, I cut out the overlay and the base of the card along with an overlay to go under the brown overlay.  After the brown overlay was cut out, I used my Big Shot and square framelits to make the window.  It took a little bit of work to get everything lined up, but it gives the card character if everything is not perfect.  Once the window was complete, I stamped the snowman and snowflakes onto the blue overlay.  I then adhered it to the back of the window.  This card turned out exactly how I envisioned it.  I love how it appears that you are looking outside at the snowman that someone created.  Time for bed so I can wake up and create lots of cards tomorrow.  Until next time, happy carding everyone!
