Fall to Layout #42 Take Two

Good afternoon!




Here's this week's sketch. I really love this one. I decided though since it's already winter here, I would change out the flowers for a snowman!


Some basic measurements:
The card is 4.25 x 5.5
The image panel is 3.25 x 4.5. 
The side plain part is .75 x  4-3/8. 
The card is 4.25 x 5.5

For my card, I pulled out an "oldie". I didn't realize it, but this classic from Papertrey Ink is retired. I felt like colouring, so I stamped the various pieces to build my snowman in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used B99 and B95 for the blue components. When I showed it to my husband, he requested that I make it Blue and Gold in honour of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers playoff game today. So I thought, why not! That would still work for a fun holiday card! I used YR23 for the yellow components and then went over it with a gold Spica pen. I used a little bit of YR07 for the carrot nose and some B41 for shading on the snow parts.

I cut out the snowman and added him to a little stitched snow drift. The sentiment is also from a retired set- Holiday Button Bits. The background is a star/snow coverplate out of Enchanted Evening. I used a little bit of Honey Nut for the side panel. I added a little bit of gold cord for my ribbon element. Finally, I pulled out a super old retired blue from Stampin' Up. I think it was Bordering Blue?  And that was it! I suppose it's a bit "fussy" to be totally classified as clean and simple, but I think the clean layers and single focal point help keep it on the CAS side.


Thanks for stopping by!
