I just love this week's Paper Pretties PWC273 Challenge. It's "Black and White Plus One". You can pick whatever other color you'd like your plus one to be. The most amazing thing about this challenge is that you can't go wrong, whatever color you pick will look good. So pick one and get cracking so you can enter the challenge and have a chance to win five digital images.
I had a difficult time deciding on a stamp to use. I had to do the old "eenie, meanie, miney, moe" to make my choice but I am very happy with the outcome. Once I decided on this stamp the plus one color had to be red for the cardinal. If the cardinal wasn't in this card I could have gone with blue for snow, orange for the carrot, any color that I like for the stripe in the scarf - you get the idea. Now get going.
This card is so quick to make and looks great. You can make it even quicker with a few changes. Make it a single layer card, stamp the snowman a little higher on the card and Instead of using the ribbon and button use a washi tape to underscore him. I have a red and white washi tape so I think I will do just that later on and post it.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Frosty -Clear"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - Bazzill "Snow White" and "Grenadine Red" card stock
miscellaneous - red copic marker; Stampin' Up slot punch; red gingham ribbon; snowflake button
