Fall-To Layout #206

Hooray for a 3-day weekend...not that I did anything special on my day off today. I went to Target (because I heard there was baker's twine in their $1 section) and New York and Company (because I had a coupon), but I came home with nothing. So this day ended up being a lazy day of NCIS reruns and catching up on my book and sleep. I guess it's back to the grind tomorrow.

Card:
I wanted to break out some of my new Christmas stamp sets that I got from Marshalls a while back. I bought them when they were on clearance after the holiday season, so I didn't get to use them then, but I can now! I also used a new pack of snowmen embellishments that I got at a yard sale last week, as well as some metallic maroon cardstock that I got from Tuesday Morning yesterday. After I finished the card, I realized that the sentiment is kinda ironic considering the bundled up snowman in the snow, but he's cute! I also like how this card can be easily reproducible and the snowman can easily be switched up with an origami Santa or another type of embellishment. I used Fall-To Layout #206 for inspiration.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Charcoal
Stamps: Inkadinkado- Holiday Expressions, Inkadinkado- Snowflakes
Embellishment: Jolee's Boutique- Snowmen
Other: Liquid Pearl in Platinum, Black Sharpie Ultra Fine Point marker
