First Christmas Card

Okay, I have the first Christmas card of the year to post, I have 5 that I did for a stamp and stack, and hopefully by the end of the five I will have more projects to post for you. That is my mission for the weekend hee hee hee! Let's see if I get it done LOL!
Stamps: Merry and Bright(110376; set of 4 -$14.95), Warm Words(107123; set of 8 $20.95 - on the dormant list)
Paper: Real red: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (finished size), real red 5/8" x 5 1/4" strip, real red scallop, Bashful Blue: 4" x 5 1/4", bashful blue 1/4" x 5 1/4" strip, bashful blue 1 3/8" circle, Whisper White: 1 1/4" circle
Ink: Black Stazon, Bashful Blue Classic Stamp Pad, Real red S&W marker, Bashful Blue S&W marker
Stampin’ Up! Accessories: Snail Adhesive, Stampin dimensionals, 6" of Red Gingham Ribbon, mini glue dots, scallop punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punchFirst I stamped the snowflakes from Merry and Bright in bashful blue in on the bashful blue CS. I then stamped the snowman onto whisper white omitting the phrase merry and bright then punched it out with 1 1/4" circle punch, then sketch colored some of the snowman using the real red and bashful blue S&W markers then layered it on a 1 3/8" circle, then onto the real red scallop. Using snail adhesive I attached the bashful blue to the real red card, then attached the real red 5/8" x 5 1/4" strip, then layered the bashful blue 1/4" x 5 1/4" strip. I then attached the scallop mount using stampin dimensionals. I tied the ribbon in a bow and attached it with a mini glue dot. Stamped "be merry" in black and voila - my first Christmas card. Enjoy!
