Snowman Couple Christmas Card

Welcome back for my third and final card for my November classes.
For this card I started by dry embossing the white background with the Happy Holidays Embossing Folder. 

Then a Frame was cut out of Kiwi Slice cardstock using the Die from Snapshot Frames. The word Joy was also cut from the same Die Set. 
The Joy was cut from White and Cranberry Bliss Cardstocks and layered to look like snow on top of the word. I added some glitter to the white portion to make the snow glittery.

Tree were stamped on a background panel in Fresh Forest Ink using the Fresh Forest Stamp Se. The sky was colored in with a light blue PanPastel.

For the snow, I used Journey Modeling Paste and topped it off with Journey Sparkle Cuts to make it sparkle.

The Snow Couple, From Snowmen Days was stamped, colored with the Color Burst Pencils and cut out by hand. There is a die for this but I prefer to hand cut. 

The Poinsettia was cut from the Poinsettia Steel Rule Die. Then sponged with Cranberry Bliss Ink, adhered together and yellow glitter I found in my stash, was added to the center.

A triple bow was made from Journey Candle Apple Twine and adhered to upper left corner
