Christmas Kickstart #54 - Funny Ho, Ho!

Hello friends.  Playing along with the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where they are looking for FUNNY, HO, HO!


I don't have a very big inventory of funny or snarky Christmas stamps, but I do LOVE this image from MFT's Christmas sELFies stamp set.  


The one snowman with his tongue sticking out just cracks me up!  I stamped the image in black and then clear heat embossed so I could water color my image.  (used an Aqua Painter and SU! inks)  Once it was dry I die cut the image out and added to a rectangle that I stamped the sentiment on, to make it look like a Polaroid picture.


I added foam strips to the back of this layer and added it to a layer that I embossed using an older Cuttlebug dotted embossing folder, and then attached both to a top folding white card base.  I added a few silver pearls (PFS) and some black & white bakers twine, and then last minute decided to add some glitter to the snowman who has his tongue sticking out...he just looks like the kind of character who would be sticking his tongue to something he shouldn't!  Haha!!

If you need help getting a head start on those Christmas cards, this is a great challenge to play along with!  You can check out Jo's and her guest elf's cards and then play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
