Practicing Creativity

Swinging Snowman – Swinging by to wish you a Merry Christmas!

Let's take a break from the Victorian look, shall we? This card features From the Heart's Swinging Snowman digital stamp. That's rather a risque name for a stamp, don't you think? Conjuring up images of wild, lascivious, partying snowmen. Or have I just been making too many Victorian Christmas cards and now my mind has gone into sweetness overload? Probably the later.

I was pleased with how the image matched the paper, which is an off brand I picked up in the sale bin at my grocery store. We don't have squat around here in the way of craft shops, but by golly, the grocery store rocks! Like the paper I used on this masculine Gibson Bear birthday card.

The paper bow was made with Elizabeth Craft Designs Four Bows die. The sentiment comes with the digital stamp.
