Oh Joy a Snowman


Brr an nice icy cool card today. I bougt some new LOTV stamps and this was one of them. I do love snowmen and this one has been coloured with Promarkers with a touch of Sakura Bluestar and a red glitter pen. I decided to make a card with no papers for a change, using Core'dinations which distressed. I used a swiss dots embossing folder and then covered most of it up with some gorgeous vintage ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I added  lace doily, sentiment from Pollycraft, MS punched snowflakes with glitter card, MB cloud die with embossed Core'dinations and a Sizzix gate die.
