Warm Wishes Snowman


I had a hard time watching this card walk away today. Isn't it funny how we get attached to certain cards? At least I really like the person who bought it. :)

Though I really love the Cappuccino Snowman digi stamp, I think I really liked the colors I used for it. I wanted to try something different and get away from the traditional holiday colors, seeing as though snowmen can be very generalized, so I went bold...literally. I chose 5 different sheets of DP and went a little crazy with the layering before settling on the layout. The snowman is colored with prismas and outlined and shadowed in chalks to give him so definition. The best part was the mug of cocoa embellie I found laying around. I thought it was the perfect card to use it on. Hopefully this will be my motivation to get a ton of Christmas cards done this week... wish me luck! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
