Snow Angels in Summer


Hi everyone! I'm Misty from The Jolly Fat Elf and I'm excited to be a guest designer for Gerda Steiner Designs!


If you didn't know, Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year and I start a holiday card series each year on the Wednesday after Labor Day! I love the Snow Angels Stamp set, but decided to put a summer spin on it! 


I love how these images look as if they're playing in the snow. I realized, that with a few changes, they could like as if they were swimming or floating in a pool!  I started by creating my pool background. Several companies have stencils that you can use to mimic the look of water in a pool. I used Salty Ocean and Broken China distress oxides for the back ground.              
If you're like me, you're crafty...and you're working on more than one craft at a time! I started saving the drills from my diamond paintings and they make the perfect shaker material! I used two rectangles to make a frame. I added some transparency sheets from my teaching days and then added blue and white diamonds to create the shaker!
Lastly, I added our three friends to the pool cut out and stamped the sentiment from the Melon Muncher stamp. It's the perfect sentiment for our fun shaker card!
What do you think? I am obsessed with the little snow angels swimming during their vacation from the holiday madness! Be sure to check out the video to see it all come together!
Thank you again to the team for selecting me as a guest designer! I'll see you next Wednesday for another card!
