Holiday Snowman


It started snowing here last night - whoo hoo!! The kids are going to be so excited to go out and play this morning!! That has inspired me to make Christmas cards all weekend!!

This card uses non traditional Christmas colours, and tons of embossing. I ran the background panels through the big shot, with a Cuttlebug folder, and then dragged a sparkly blue ink pad across the raised parts for definition! I then added tiny blue bling to the centers of some of the snowflakes!
Image is by Stampcraft, and is coloured with Copics and Stickles. Scalloped brown mat is cut with Nestabilities.
Sparkly white brads are by Doodlebug, foam snowflake is from Michaels, and ribbon is from my stash.
Challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Pick your toppings (Blue, ribbon, embossing)
Delightful Challenges - Oh Baby It's cold outside
Paper Romance - Favourite Things (Stickles, Copics, Doodlebug Brads)
2 Sisters - Snowflakes
Totally Papercrafts - Snow and Snowflakes
Totally Gorjuss - non traditional colours
