Joy Christmas card featuring 2 Cute Ink Warm Winter Wishes digital stamp

Christmas card featuring 2 Cute Ink Warm Winter Wishes digital stamp, by Paperesse.

Welcome to a festive kind of Friday with this Joy Christmas card featuring 2 Cute Ink's Warm Winter Wishes digital stamp. It's a super cute stamp, but I'm wondering if these snowmen have a death wish. Snowmen should definitely NOT press, incline or dive into steaming cups of hot chocolate (is that what the one on the handle's doing? or is he warming himself? same difference). In Snowman land, hot beverages are best avoided.

Yes, I'm overthinking it. You've got to suspend belief with digital stamps. In stamp land pigs grill (vegetarian pigs!), teddy bears having drinking problems, and donkeys wear thong underwear, all for the express purpose of making our loved ones smile.

Isn't this new paper pretty? I rarely buy real paper packs anymore, and rarer still ones that aren't on sale, but I found this Echo Park Carta Bella Christmas Delivery 6x6 paper pad as I was urgently surfing Amazon, desperately trying to spend a Christmas gift certificate (I succeeded). It was so pretty I couldn't resist. The letter stickers go so well with the paper you'd think they came together, but no, I picked these up at the grocery store right before Christmas.

  4. Oh Shani - what a darling card! Your pencil work, on the cup especially, shows off your wonderful blending skills. The highlights and shadows are subtle and so well blended - something I definitely have not mastered. And those wonderful papers! You always combine successfully papers that would not occur to me - and the results are dramatic!

  5. That is one JOY-ful card with those cute snowmen and hot cup of cocoa! Thanks for playing with us at 4 Crafty Chicks this week!

  6. Should be too cute rather than 2 cute! The little snowmen are adorable, even if their cuteness is risky behavior! Love the paper and yes, the letter look like they were made for it. Darling card.
