A Winter Card

It seems a bit early for winter projects, but I could not resist making a card with this adorable snowman stamp that I received with my last order from Unity Stamps! 

I wanted the focus to be on the cute snowman and I used some crayons to color in his carrot nose and stocking hat and scarf.  I am not a stamp coloring pro by any means, so I tried to keep the coloring to a minimum.  After coloring him, I added glitter to give him that snowy feel. 

To give the card more texture and dimension, I created a multi-layered snowflake using two snowflake SVGs by Bird's Cards.  These SVGs are free on the Bird's Cards site, so pick them up if you haven't already.  Once I cut the snowflakes out, I dowsed them with glimmer mist and glitter and added the button with the twine in the center.

Materials Used:
'One of a Kind Winter' Itty Bitty Stamp set by Unity Stamps
Snowflake SVGs by Bird's Cards
Twine by Stampin' Up
Button by Autumn Leaves
Hexagon Stickers are from the My Mind's Eye All is Bright Collection
Patterned papers by MME and Stampin' Up
Gems by Creative Charms
Glitter by Martha Stewart Crafts
Scalloped Border Punch by Stampin' Up
