CAS Red & Brown Snowman

I'm making a glittered acetate card today and I'm having to wait for the glue to dry before I can move on so I popped onto the Splitcoast Stampers website to see what today's CAS challenge is. It's a colour challenge to use red and brown - plus you can add white or cream.

I made a red and brown snowman window card a while ago so I thought it would be fun to make a similar card but to change things around a little bit. Click here to see the original card - the page will open in a new window. I've still used Kraft and Real Red CS, the same snowman stamp and circles die but I've changed the card orientation to landscape instead of portrait. I've used white CS on this card rather than vanilla so that I could use the gingham ribbon, stamped snowflakes in the circles, added a sentiment and some brads and omitted the window.

I enjoyed using my original card as inspiration to come up with a different design - I may very well do that again in the future!

Stamps: Inkadinkado Holiday Sentiments clear stamp set, Wishes of Joy sentiment from Hero Arts Winter Wishes set, SU! Snow Flurries set
CS: SU! Kraft & Real Red CS, white CS
Ink: VersaMagic Jumbo Java chalk ink
Tools: Sizzix Decorative Strip 'Circles' die, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig
Embellishments & accessories: Red & white gingham ribbon, red brads
