Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?

Another holiday card, and just days before the holiday.  This one was designed with three challenges in mind, Merry Monday, whose challenge was a winter themed Christmas card, CAS-ology, whose challenge was "Snow", and then my StampNation group had a "Let it Snow" challenge. 

For this card, I stamped my design in the bottom right corner first using Memento ink so I could come back in later with my Copics.  Once the image was down, I used a stencil and embossing paste, masking off the areas over my stamped image.  I added glitter before the embossing paste dried.

Once the embossing paste was dry, I went in with my Copics . . . shades of green, red, brown and gray.  I just love this stamped image.  I toyed with leaving it all image, and putting the sentiment inside.  In the end, I decided to add the banner.  And here is a close-up of that glitter . . .

A fun card to make!

Well, it's always fun to create.
