Fifth day of Clarity Christmas

Happy Friday all!

It is a happy Friday for me!  I had to go to work yesterday (which should have been my day off) so I have Friday off instead yay!!  Also, it is the fifth and final day of the Five Days of Clarity Christmas.

I thought I would finish with an older card, but Frosty is one of my favourite Clarity stamps and making frames round a scene is one of my favourite things to do, so it is worth an outing!

I start by making the frame
Mask off a square in the centre of a piece of card and stamp the two sizes of snowflake stamp all over - I used black and blue ink (sorry, can't remember which colour!)
remove the mask and use post-its to cover up the frame and leave you the centre square exposed to create the scene.
Stamp 'Frosty' first and mask him off, then stamp a row of trees behind him - I used a torn piece of copy paper to give me the line - again I used the same colours, black and blue
I used promarkers to colour in his hat and scarf
Add a bit of shading
Ink round the edge of the card
Add a couple of black squiggly lines round the frame
Add the Season's Greetings and mount up
(I used deckle-edged scissors to cut round the greeting and I like to line up both layers of card - is that a bit OCD???)
The tree and snowflake miniatures both come from the Christmas miniatures set and the Season's Greetings  is also available as a mini.

I do hope you've enjoyed this little piece of Christmas in July (I have to say that the weather here is more appropriate for Christmas than summer!)

Have a fun day

  1. This is my type of card Janet. Like it a lot. Will definitely be working on a variation for some of my cards. Have a good permitting.

  2. I like Frosty! He is one of my favourites! See you later! :) xx
