Drunken Stampers #93 - Christmas in July

This week's challenge on Drunken Stampers is "Christmas in July"
Here's a link to the blog for all the challenge details:
Be sure to check out the cards from the rest of the design team while you are there!!

For my card for this challenge I wanted to make a snowman on the beach enjoying a fruity drink (we are after all the DRUNKEN Stampers). Isn't that where snowmen go in the summer?? To the beach??? I guess they just have to drink fast so their ice cubes don't melt (hee hee).

I love using punches to make shapes or objects that were not necessarily for what the punch was intended.
The snowman's hands are two pieces of the SU snowflake punch
For the sun, I used the SU 1 3/4" scallop punch, offset the scallop and punched it twice to get the pointy edges.

The snowman was made from SU circle punches (2 1/2", 1 3/4" and 1 1/4")
I tore and inked three pieces of kraft paper to make the beach and used scalloped scissors on three pieces of inked marina mist CS for the waves and inked the sky with marina mist ink.
The fruity drink is from the SU retired set "Cheers to You"

Thanks for lookin!!
