It's the beginning of July and that means new releases from Doodle Pantry. Laurie has some of the cutest winter weather images ever this month. I just love making winter/Christmas cards when the temperatures are pushing 100+ degrees here in Texas! It really does cool me off a bit.
I know it's the 4th of July here in the good ol' USA, so I used red, white and blue on my card for you traditionalists out there. :-) The pre-colored image and sentiment are from the Snowball Ants set from Doodle Pantry. Laurie has already merged 3 images together to create this adorable snowball fight scene so I merged in the sentiment as well - talk about quick and easy!
I paired the image with red cardstock from JoAnn's, SU brocade blue card stock and some very heavy white cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I started out using my Georgia-Pacific white cardstock from WalMart for the card base but quickly realized that it wasn't strong enough for this type of stand-up card (see the side view photo). Also on this card I used the Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder, an EK border punch and Really Reasonable Ribbon from this month's ribbon club. Yolanda's card and sketch from the OWH/OSH bloghop were my inspiration for the layout (see sketch below).
