Let It Snow

My Candy is here.  I'm a new blogger trying for 50 followers.

I'm still on a Christmas kick!  For this card, I embossed the snowman in silver, coloured with watercolour markers, circle punched, outlined the circle in silver, and added Stickles. I punched two other circles from blue cardstock, outlined them in silver, and affixed to a white card base, which I also outlined in silver.  I embossed the sentiment and snowflake in silver and affixed the snowman circle with foam tape.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Snowman (Sunshine Designs), snowflake (The Old Island Stamp Company), sentiment (dollar store)
  • Ink:  Versamark Watermark
  • Watercolour markers:  Tombow
  • Circle Punch:  Marvy Uchida
  • Silver marker:  Pilot
  • Embossing Powder:  The Artful Stamper
