Santa Snowman

Ho Ho Ho to all of you!  Today I am showing you a card I created with the Santa Snowman (#16704) image from QKR Stampede.  Is he cute or what?

I stamped him onto white card stock and colored the image with water color pencils.  I added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the hat and Red Stickles to the berries to give it a some dimension and sparkle. 

The image was adhered to red card stock and then layered onto white card stock.  The sentiment is a sticker from a set that I found at The Christmas Tree Shop for only $.50, what a deal!

This card measures 3 1/4" x 5 1/2" so it isn't a standard size, but it will fit into an A-2 envelope. 

Here is a tip, when mailing an off size card in an A-2 envelope, take small pieces of foam tape and put them into the bottom of the envelope, making sure that the card will still fit into the envelope properly.  With this bit of foam tape in the bottom of the envelope the card is sitting at the top when the envelope is opened.  This same technique can be used when a card is not as wide as the envelope, simply put the foam tape along the sides of the envelope. 
I hope that makes sense.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you like my card.  Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.  Be sure to stop back soon, we'll have more projects to show you each day.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
