Mentally Cooling Off

After spending the last three days out in the hot sun at my grandson's baseball tournament, I decided to mentally cool off by making some Winter Cards for the current

When I pulled out my box of Winter/Christmas stuff, I discovered a decoupage pack with coordinating papers right on top.  It came in one of my magazines, after I had already made all of last year's  cards.  Since it had 4 darling images, I decided to use that and dig no further.   Instead of making the images 6 layers high, I went with 3 layers and made 8 cards. 

After completing these cards, I still had a good bit of paper left.   Using a CTMH stamp, I made my own 3 layer decoupage image for these 2 cards.
It's so much easier just popping images out of a premade decoupage sheet than fussy cutting.  
But I really do like the effect of all the layers. 
There's still more paper, but I'm calling it quits for today.

  2. Love the snowmen and polar bear, Debi! We've been sweltering in the heat, too, but I'm running away again to get out of it. After a week in the mountains and only 2 days back at home in the heat, I'm heading to the beach for another week. Maybe the worst of it will be over by the time I get back. :-D Time for my DT hat- Thanks so much for playing along and supporting our challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies this month. Good luck in the draw.
