Simple Doodles

My pal Rose told me that Simple Doodles was having a Guest DT Call, so I thought I'd give it a try. They have super cute digi stamps so it would be fun to DT for them.

I snagged one of their free digi stamps and made this card (5.5x4.25 size). This snowman stamp is adorable! I sized him kind of big in Photoshop, and then printed him out on white cardstock. I cut his hat out of black cardstock. I added some creases with a white pen, and then popped it off the main image. I followed the challenge at 365 Cards Day 256 - Perfect Pair (button and rick rack) to decorate his hat.

The rick rack is velvet, then I added a Prima holly leaf and a Buttons Galore button. I tied the button with some twine. I colored the snowman nose with several shades of colored pencil. The whole thing is popped off the card.

The background paper is glitter K&Company. I love the contrast of the red and pale blue papers together. The greeting stamp is Papertrey Ink, from the 2009 Holiday Tags set.

Come visit again tomorrow as I'll have my embossing card ready to show you! And maybe a few other things!

ETA: This also matches the 365 Cards Day 258 Challenge - put a hat on your card. I did post this the day before the challenge went up. But as a DT I knew about the challenge ahead of time. So...ok, I cheated again!
