Snow Much Fun

Hi everybody.  It's that time of the month again for the Rudolph Days Challenge  hosted by the lovely Mo, and I have chosen to use a Sweet Dixie Stamp called Best Friends which was one of two stamps I won over at Pixie's Playground and it has been inked up for the first time.  I also used a Crafter's Companion embossing folder called Touch of Winter which I bought at The Range before last Christmas.

I decided to make a one layer card so I embossed the EF straight on to the 7" x 5" base card and then stamped the cute snowman and penguin using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.  I then coloured it with my Inktense Pencils taking the ink from the pencil with a waterbrush and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the snowballs and on the snow just to hightlight it, and also to the snowflakes on the embossing which looks really sparkly and pretty but unfortunately it doesn't show up in the photo.  I finished with the fun sentiment from a freebie set of stamps which came with a Creative Stamping Magazine..funnily enough these were a bumper set of Christmas stamps by Crafter's Companion and I thought this sentiment fitted on the card perfectly.  

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.

That partial embossing makes a lovely frame for the cute little snowman! Love how you coloured him and how crisp is that sentiment! Lovely Christmascard, Pat!

What a lovely card Pat, I love the little snowman and he's coloured so beautifully. Such a pretty embossing folder too, and a lovely layout, Kate x

I have a similar folder with holly in the corner, sitting unused for lack of inspiration. Love how you've used your folder. It's given me some ideas for mine. xoxo

Your card is so sweet. Loving the image and pretty design you created with the embossing folder.
Methinks your photo has changed and wanted to say your hair looks is a little different now, I think. I took advantage of never leaving the house for so long and grew my coloured hair out. I now have very grey hair and a layered cut. I like it and decided that my old hairdresser colouring costs can now fund more card making supplies!

Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph Days Challenge!
