We shared how to make a scenic greeting card on our live stream stamping show yesterday, but we made it a little bit differently than the one that we originally made.

Now, I know that it’s Halloween, but I know that

Here is the original card.

We made it as a sympathy card, but that’s not how we did it yesterday.

A few things to note:

  • The greeting on the Snowman card is from Itty Bitty Birthdays.
  • The size of the Shimmery White Cardstock is 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ (We trimmed it later.)
  • To make the water darker, you could lightly drag your ink pad over the bottom part of the card.
  • Our thanks to our friend Amanda who inspired this card – but our techniques, colors and cards are totally different.

And here is the way we finished this second card. Same overall idea, but by small changes, you have a different look.

Honestly? I think I like it better! Here are a few things that you might want to know.

  • I told Ann to stamp more branches to cover that little spot.
  • When we trimmed the card stock down to the right size, we took the 1/4″ excess off the right side which made the mountain shore a little smaller – and that’s okay.
  • Here are the stamp sets we used:

If you wondered how you can get a Sponge Brayer like she used, you can find them here in our online store. Our Stamping Sponges are pretty reasonable for just $4 – especially when you can cut them up into 18 ones to work with different colors.

Did I cover everything? I hope so. We do our best.

And I hope you can join us for our First Friday Stamp Sale. We’ve got lots of retired paper colors, bundles and paper crafting items that you might be interested in.
