Snowman Love


Hi everyone!  Although the temperature is no longer dipping below zero we still have lots of snow on the ground around here so I thought it fitting to create yet another snowman card this season.  Snowman Love is a digital stamp from Heart Song Designs.  I think the little bird perched on top of the birdhouse is SO adorable! 


My card base is Blue Bayou layered with PTI White then Winter Frost patterned paper. The shadow layer is Blue Bayou and Kraft cardstock embossed using the Snowflakes Embossing Folder. I stitched around the edges of card base and shadow layer. The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers. I distressed the edges using Baja Breeze ink before paper piercing. To embellish the card I added some White Taffeta Ribbon around the shadow layer and a pretty bow finished with a pearl snowflake. I also added some pearls along the edge of the image.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
