I have an addiction to cute snowmen and honestly, don't have enough of them. So, when I got my hands on this cute guy, I just had to make a card for a sneak peak to this coming Digi Release Thursday over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I love Digi's because you can re-size them to fit what ever size card you want to make.
I used sketch 24 from Sketch & Stash Challenge Blog for the design of this card. I thought this layout was perfect for the stash (buttons) I've accumulated but seldom use. As a matter of fact, the buttons are all an off white color, so I used my Copic Markers to color them to match the card. The image itself was also colored with Copic Markers. They're another thing I'm addicted to. They may be very expensive, but well worth the cost.
I also couldn't resist submitting this to the "All Sorts Challenge Blog" for Today's challenge, which is to use Buttons. This is a great blog that I just stumbled upon.
The snow in the background is just tiny dots of liquid applique with some diamond dust sprinkled on to give it some sparkle. I also used it under the snowman. His face and body also has ultra fine crystal glitter on it. Oh, I also added some fine glitter to the pine sprigs in the upper right corner. It's not winter without glitter.
I went with unusual colors for this card. The DP is from Eskimo Kisses from Basic Grey. I pulled some CTMH heavenly blue cardstock to match the blue dots in the DP. Then just followed through with the pinks and reds also in the paper.
The Hand stitching around the card was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
