Good Things Come in Threes

Hello friends!
I want to talk about Rule of Three today and this is what I find after Google.

From fairytales to hollywood blockbusters, “the rule of three” (Latin-"omne trium perfectum") principle suggests things that come in threes are inherently more humorous, satisfying and effective than any other number of things.

The above pretty much sums up the design of my card.
This, I present you....
 three Amigos snowman!

If you look closely, this card is a multiple of 3s. I do think it is quite pleasing to the eyes. I even went all out and stamped the sentiment in 3s. After I did that, the song "Let it Snow" stuck in my head for a while!


When the foiling trend started, I didn't have anything remotely close to foiling.
Until I made a little "investment" to get the foil sheets a few weeks ago.
 This low-tech foiling requires minimum investment. Just the sheets and glue/glue tape and that's it.
Ranger Foil Sheets (Holiday)
For my project, I used the thin double-sided tape and then add foil over (apply just enough pressure) and that's it. The thin strip on the snow ground was the result of my first try foiling.

Here are the foiling products that are available.Since I have been creating so many Holiday-themed cards, it is high time to jump on the foiling  trend. So far, so good, I'd say!
Here is my previous card that I made with the SAME stamp set.
Merry Christmas

Here are the sales items over Simon Says Stamp.

The little snowmen are adorable. You created a beautiful background for them. And I love the way you stamped the sentiment.
