If you're a fan of the So Suzy Podcasts, like I am, you may have caught "Using Snark The Right Way" Although I'm a long time fan of snark, and that's what initially drew me to Suzy, I picked up a lot of great tips from this podcast. The best tip I learned is to surprise them with the snark. In other words, keep the exterior of the card traditional, and slap them with snark on the inside!

That's exactly what I did with the card I'm featuring today.



As I mentioned in a prior blog post, I'm a fan of cutting my stamps so I can better customize them. That's exactly what I did with this sentiment from So Suzy Stamps This sentiment is definitely getting a lot of love this year from me! 

Using Spellbinders Contemporary Strip Shapeabilities and A2 Devine Eleoquence Card Creator die cuts, paired with paper from DCWV  I pieced together my card front using two different patterned papers. I stamped my Christmas Tree layered image from Hero Arts using Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn, and Pine Needles. I embellished them with Red Berry Crystal Drops from Nuvo and a few swipes of Clear Wink of Stella. I popped the tree image using a few strips of foam tape. 

Now for the snark! The second half of this sentiment captures the spirit of the season (see what I did there). Stamped onto the same striped paper used to feature the sentiment on the card front, I departed from a traditional white interior. I stamped and fussy cut (yes, fussy cut) a wine glass, colored the liquid portion with Golden Sunset Nuvo Crystal Drops then once it dried, I colored over it with a red marker. 



Thanks so much for hopping along today! I hope you enjoyed my feature card and would love your feedback! Be sure to leave comments along the way to be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card to So Suzy Stamps! Be sure to leave your comment by December 12th 12pm Pacific Time Zone (3pm EST)
