Let it Snow!

Some days it’s so hot a nice snow shower would definitely be in order!  But today it’s all about the Flourishes Christmas challenge, FLLCNOEL16, and it’s to make a Christmas song inspired card.   
I chose the sweet snowman from Warm Winter Wishes.  He’s stamped on watercolor paper and painted with SU reinkers.

All of the patterned paper is from the Jovial paper pad by Basic Grey.  The snowflake mat was made by cutting out two Fleur de Lis from Spellbinders from glittered cardstock.  I think it might be Bazzill.   The same glitter paper was used for the Martha Stewart border I punched and added on the left side of the card.  I used a Spellbinders Standard Circles large die to cut out the main image.   I accented the snowman with Marvy Liquid Applique and sprinkled on some Winter Glitter from Judikins while it was still we.  Hopefully you can see that and the glittery paper in the close up below.

I used some velvet trim and a decorative button for accents and stamped the sentiment three times and cut them out by hand and added them randomly down the side. 
Join in this months Christmas challenge and head over to the Flourishes blog for all the details and to see more song inspired creations!  Thanks for stopping by!

Another artful card Danielle. I love your re-inker coloring and that scarf color is beautiful. Love the applique, it is my favorite thing to use for snow and frosting. I also love the repeat of the sentiment. That was brilliant! Hope you and you sweet family are doing well. Best, Curt
