Just Chill

December is a crazy and chaotic time of year for most everyone, but that's especially true in our household. Not only do we have all the usual holiday hoopla, but also 2 kids' birthdays (within 10 days of each other) to plan and celebrate, as well as the company Christmas party. Unfortunately, that means my scrapbooking and paper crafting pretty much goes on hiatus until January.

I do have a fun little card to share, though...and it's got a "cool" message, too!

This snowman shaped card was made with the giant snowman sticker from the Frosted collection by Reminisce, along with a word sticker that I made into the sign he's holding. It's hard to tell in the photo, but these stickers are glittered and sparkly...a perfect look for a frosty little snowman! I also added some snowflake stickers, as well as a few buttons, a ribbon "scarf", and a gem-centered flower for his hat to dress him up a bit and give him some dimension and interest. The giant snowman sticker made it easy to create this shaped card...I just adhered the sticker to a folded piece of white cardstock, then cut around the snowman, leaving his hat connected at the fold.

This card would be great for someone (like me) who could use a reminder to take a step back amid the holiday stress and madness and "Just Chill." Hmm...maybe I'll keep him for awhile. :)

Wishing you and yours a cool holiday season!
