Warm Holiday Wishes


We had a big storm last night and today is very cloudy and dreary.  I decided to dig out an old Inkadinkado stamp set that has my favorite snowman to make another Christmas card.  

To frame this darling snowman, I first used the Marianne Design DS0908 embossing folder to embossing the bottom of the card.  This is a 6x6" card and I had some empty space on top of the embossed frame,  so embossed that space using the eBosser Darling Dots embossing folder to resemble snow.  The Snowman was stamped in the widest portion of the frame and colored with Copic Markers.  

The poinsettia was die cut using the Poppy Stamps "Blooming Poinsettia" dies.  The center of each petal was shaded with a very light sponging of Milled Lavender Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from the same Inkadinkado stamp set.  I do not know the name of this set or if it is still available because I have had it for a long time.  The sentiment was die cut using scallop Nestabilities and each scallop pierced.  The large snowflakes were punched using the Martha Stewart "Polar Snowflake" punch.  The tiny snowflakes were some previously punched in my stash.  I believe they came out of a border punch.

Well, one more card completed before the holidays arrive!

Your card is beautiful! The snowman is so cute on the white and frosty sparkles. I would never have thought to tint the center of the poinsettia milled lavender. Gorgeous!
Thanks for sharing! :)
