MAMA ELEPHANT Little Snowman Agenda | Stamp Highlights

September 24, 2018

Hello friends! I am sharing a card today that I made using the new Little Snowman Agenda stamps from Mama Elephant. My favorite thing to do whenever Mama Elephant releases a little agenda set is to look at each individual image to see what they’re up to. It always brings a smile to my face! This set was no exception. So cute and who doesn’t love a bunch of little snowman.

I decided to pair them with the Grid Window Creative Cuts in my card today. At first, I felt like I’ve done this too much but when things work, they just do. I decided not to fight it and paired them together and I am so happy I did!

I went for a little bit of an unconventional look by using a sea foam green and pale pink as my “Christmas colors”. What I got at the end was a soft, different Christmas card that I absolutely love.

All my images are colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in green shadow, tea rose, brick beige, flesh color and gray tint for the shading of the snowmen. I die cut them all with coordinating dies then set them aside to work on the Grid Window background.

I found some coordinating colored card stock and cut the grid window from it. I also cut another grid window out of fun foam to add to the back for dimension. For the background, I lined up a piece of Bristol smooth card stock and used a pencil to mark the top and bottoms of the little windows. I blended Distress Ink Sugar sugar to have way down each window into white.

To finish the card, I popped up each snowman in a window with foam tape and my card in finished. Because I did not have room for a sentiment in the front, I added “May all your Christmases be white” from the Merry Greetings stamp set. I found this to match perfectly with all the little snowmen.

That’s it from me. Thank you for stopping by!
