As soon as I saw her card, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card with a brand new SU set I bought on EBAY. It is a retired set, yet it had never been used. I think these snowmen are the cutest ever :-). I embossed the upper half with polka dots, and then used my brayer to flatten the bottom few layers out so they would fade into the scene. Finally found good use for my brayer - lol.
Thanks so much for taking a closer look. Hope you like it :-)

I see we both made Christmas cards today, Barb! In case you didn't know, the stamp comes from the set Flaky Friends. I love mine, and I adore the bright colors you used for these men today! What a great way to put your brayer to work for you~ I need to remember that one!

These guys are SO cute and how lucky to find an unused set! I had to chuckle about the brayer too. What a clever use for it! Now who would have thought? I use mine for everything except ink. I love your take on her card using her card as a general idea yet making it all your own! Fantastic Christmas card!
