Warmest Wishes from Your Neighborhood Snowman

Howdy crafty friends!  I’m popping in tonight with a sweet snowman card that I made with the Warmest Wishes stamp/die set from TSG.  I must admit that I have a thing for a cute snowman… I really can’t resist buying a stamp set that includes one. :)

I used a die from the set to cut the snowman out and then stamped the corresponding image on it.  I also stamped a couple of buttons on his belly.  Who’s a cute little snow-dude?  Who? ;)  After I finished talking to the image in baby talk I colored him with Copic markers and added a touch of Glossy Accents to the buttons and nose.

For the background I layered a piece of designer paper on Kraft cardstock and then again on a piece of Turquoise cardstock whose edges I punched with a scallop border punch.  The next layer is another piece of Kraft cardstock that I dotted the edges with Platinum Liquid Pearls.

Hmm… I originally planned to make a simple card that could be mass produced… ha ha ha!
