I began by covering a 8 inch square card blank with a paper from LOTV's Frosty Christmas paper pad. I then cut a strip of another of the papers from the pad, cut and embossed it with Spellbinder's Classic petal border (I omitted the outer cutting edge) and attached it to the card base. I attached a piece of lace (from the Ribbon Girl) along the top of the card and then cut another of the papers with the outer edge of the Spellbinder's Classic petal border. I inked the edge of the paper with tumbled glass distress ink and then attached it to the card base.
The stamp is from LOTV and is called Seeds and greetings (ST530) which has been coloured with the following Promarkers -
- snowman - icicle, burnt sienna, mandarin and heatwave
- robins - saddle brown, praline, berry red and ruby
- hat and scarf - denim blue, arctic blue and sky blue
- birdfeeder - cool grey 3, cool grey 4, praline, saddle brown and walnut
I cut the image out with a Spellbinder's rectangle nestie, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and then matted it onto a Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis rectangle. I attached it to the card with foam pads and then added some Stickles to the snow and the hat.
I cut several snowflakes from some glitter card (using Spellbinder's Create a flake 4), attached them to the card as shown with foam pads and then added some blue gems (from the Ribbon Girl) to the centres.
To finish I stamped a sentiment from LOTV's Christmas Wishes stamp set (set 75), cut it out with Spellbinder's Reflective moments die set, inked out of the die with tumbled glass distress ink and then attached to the card with foam pads.
