It’s just snow wonderful

It’s that time again, when we begin sneaking peeks at the Flourishes monthly release!  December begins with Snow Wonderful!
Snow Wonderful Graphic
This set contains two beautiful images that fit into the Tailor-Made Dies Classic Keyhole!   Such an elegant shape that can be placed on a card or made into a tag! I love this die set!
word window packaging
I started by stamping my image with Memento Tuxedo black ink on Flourishes Classic White card stock. Then I colored it with Copic Markers.

I cut the image with the large Classic Keyhole die and sponged it with the die still in place.  I also shaded around the image with Prismacolor pencils and oms (odorless mineral spirits).   I stamped the sentiment on an iridescent green vellum and cut it out with the smaller die.   The snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart punch and I inked and glittered them before adding the button centers.  The paper is Basic Grey Wassail.  The bottom border branch punch is also Martha Stewart.
