A Lovely Snow Couple

How is it after making 100 cards plus I still somehow managed to be short a couple?! Instead of making a few the same I decided to ink up some of my un-used Christmas stamp THEN I can buy new ones next year because all the ones I have are old right?!

The Stamp set is from Cornish Heritage Farms, Poinsettia Snowmen. I stamped the image with my Pallette ink on Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock because I wanted to colour the image with my copics.

Somewhere between when I stamped the image & went to colour I thought it would be brilliant to paper piece the apron, scarf & hat. Now those of you who know me know how much I LOVE to cut; what was I thinking?! Once I finished the piecing I did colour the rest of the image with my copics.

For the card base I used Kiwi Kiss layered with Baja Blue, then mounted a piece of SU Ski Slope DS paper on Riding Hood Red - yes I do seem to like SU's IN COLORS. The image was again perfect for one of my nesties, and I mounted it on Kiwi Kiss. I egdged my image with a copics marker in the blue closest to Baja Blue.
A little glitter on the snowflakes & in the poinsettia's and of course I had to put a bow on it! For the embellishment I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and added some "string of pearls" baubles from Stamping Bella.

Thanks so much for the sketch Jen; I had a lot of fun making this card - maybe one day soon I will done Christmas cards?!

Hope everyone has a fantastic day - 2 more sleeps.....
