Snow Adorable

Here it is... the end of my winter card obsession... at least for now, LOL!!!  Considering I live in what seems to be the snow capital of the world I'm sure more inspiration will come along soon!  Today's card was inspired by the Friday Sketchers Challenge #82.  This is a new challenge site I recently discovered and already love their sketches!

My Snow Adorable card base is Baja Breeze layered with a slightly smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock then Bunny Hill patterned paper. I punched both edges of a strip of Kiwi Kiss cardstock using the Scallop Edge Punch then wrapped Metallic Silver Ribbon around it and tied a knot in front before attaching to the card base.  Using the Jumbo Snowflake Punch I punched out one snowflake each of Baja Breeze and Whisper White cardstock. These were layered then attached to the knot using glue dots. Next I added a button embellished with Silver Metallic Cord.

The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White using the Winter Wishes stamp set and colored in using ink and a blender pen. The nose and stick arms were colored in using Stampin' Write Markers. I punched each corner using the Ticket Corner Punch before layering on to a slightly larger piece of Baja Breeze cardstock. I added a small silver brad in each corner then attached the image to the card base using Scotch Foam Mounting Tape.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I love your bold use of color. I am inspired to re look at some of the paper I have. I tend to be very monochromatic, but I can learn by looking at your cards to be brave.Stacy

Super cute snowman! I really like seeing how you use your snowflake punch.

Something tells me that winter isn't quite over yet for us here in PA. I think we are due for a big snow storm yet.
