Merry Christmas-Tri-Fold Snow Front Card

This card was inspired by an idea I saw from Michelle Last.

It is an easy tri-fold card using Snow Front, one of my favorite stamp sets found in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

This stamp set is perfect for my surrounding in the mountains of southern Colorado.

The mountains, trees, creek, and deer. 

Plus the little cabin which reminds me of our little house in the big forest.

This stamp set has it all!

Card measures 9 3/4" x 5 1/2" and was scored at 3 1/4" and 6 1/2".

I stamped the mountains using a combination of Night of Navy, Highland Heather and Seaside Spray inks.

Once stamped, I trimmed around them using a pair of scissors.

The cabin, deer, snowman, and greeting were stamped using the Stamparatus.

The mountains, trees, water, and landscape were stamped free hand.

It came together pretty easily.  I hope you'll give it a try.

Thanks Michelle for your inspiration!

Mason Jar Lid Ornaments

Mason jar ornaments 1

Every month, a group of ladies from Wetmore and surrounding areas get together at local restaurants for lunch.

In December, my neighbor Carol and I are the co-hosts.

We got together one afternoon to create these mason jar lid ornaments to give out as favors.

We used a collection of designer papers, ribbons and embellishments, plus the Big Shot and  Snow Globe Scene Dies to create different scenes.

The circles were punched using my 2 1/2" circle punch.  We used Tombow Multi-purpose Glue as our glue along the inside edges of the rings.

And the best part is I let the double-sided designer series paper do the work for the back side of the ornamenst!

Here's the front of one of the ornaments:
