Frosty Friends Postage Stamps

This was fun to make.  I've made a card to fit Merry Monday which has a theme of Snowmen and Freshly Made Sketches.  You can see the sketch below.
I've started with a Very Vanilla card base to match the Designer Series Paper - Be of Good Cheer.  It doesn't look like Christmas Paper does it?  In fact I may use it for a birthday next time!  The Scallop Edge Border Punch makes a snowy trim along the top in Whisper White.  The scrap strip, that the punch leaves, makes a nice trim along the bottom.  I stamped Frosty Friends in Basic Black twice and punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch.  I then added some colour to the images with my Stampin' Write Markers - Cherry Cobbler, Riding Hood Red and Bashful Blue.  I mounted the stamps using Dimensionals onto a mat of Cherry Cobbler.  My sentiment comes from the fabby stamp set - That's The Ticket and punched out using the matching Ticket Builder Punch

My son gave me a request today.  "Mum when are you making that cake again?"  That cake is this one below which I have now made twice and both times disappeared faster than you could say Fluffy Vanilla Cake.  It was rather yummy!  So looks like I may be on baking duty again this weekend. 

Take care and Happy Crafting!  x
