The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

As a scrapbooking as well as card maker I was drawn to getting the Crafters Stapler from We R Memory Keeps its very handy for attaching Vellum which is what I've done with for my card.

I've used the fabulous stamps from the Simon says Stamp card kit you can get the stamp set separately called Snow Much.

I have a pile of Oxides background and luckily I had two blue ones which I then cut out using Simon says Stamp Stitched Rectangles.

I cut round my snowman trying to leave a tiny white border round them except the snowman's head for the envelope. The stamped the sentiment using a Versamark inkpad and used WOW Bright Opaque White.

I made a card front then added it to the card but before I did I turned the card front over and using something heavy to flatten the staples to help it to be flat and easier to stick.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

The coloured staples look great used here Debby and definitely add something to the very pretty finished design using those sweet snowmen. The envelope works well too. x

Fun card and envie. Thanks for the tip about flattening the staples before affixing the panel to the cardbase. I don't think I would have thought of that!
