Snow in August

It's a very late Tuesday here and I know...in some places...it's now Wednesday. I was having a sort of lazy day...thinking for some reason it was Monday and I had all day to work on the post for tomorrow...as it turns out...I didn't. I'm a little late.
I wanted to share an email I received from one of the newest design team members. She used one of the cards from her challenges here to enter another challenge. Kristine made the top six for her entry to card patterns. You can find the post here.
Melissa and I have been doing a bit of traveling with The Rubber Cafe to a few scrapbook conventions. For those of you who came to hang out with us and say HI...thank you. Our customers are really wonderful and we are so gratefull for you all. While at the show I did a lot of demoing and I was always getting asked "ok...cool...now what do you do with it?" So I wanted to show you all a fun way to decorate this really easy card. Starting off with 2 sheets of cardstock 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, score one piece at the gatefold and half fold and then turn the card around and score the gate fold again. Fold accordian style. Score the second piece at the half only. I used a few stamps here...Baby it's cold outside, It's a blizzard outside, and Magical Ball for the mini snowman. I added a snowflake cuttlebug background a little ribbon and I'm good to go. The mini snowman dangles from the pop out piece. I used dental floss for the string. If you have any questions don't forget to leave a comment in the designated section.
Have a great week and Happy Stamping.
