Snow Much Fun

The colors aren't your typical Christmas card but I love the softness this combination brings. Tips: 1) There are several layers of embossing to create texture.  The background is in polka dots and the Saffron piece is embossed with snowflakes.  2) The Saffron piece of cardstock was die cut from the Two Tags die.  3) Several punches add layers to the snowman image which was stamped in Basic Black, punched out then colored in with markers.  4) Be sure to add your ribbon before adhering it to the white cardstock. 5) Due to the new formulation in the Stampin' Up! ink pads, I highly recommend using Black Staz On ink when you stamp on white or vanilla cardstock...especially when you color an image in. 6) The white highlight mark on the hat was created with the White Gel Pen.
