CAS Snowman with Burlap and Lace

Hello, everyone!  Today I made a clean-and-simple snowman card! It's never too early to get going on the holiday cards!


I was inspired by the Burlap and Lace challenge at Newton's Nook Inky Paws (I used both!). I was inspired by the sketch at STAMPlorations (see below), and my colour combo was inspired by the July 2015 graphic at Rubber Dance Stamps (see below).


Here are the products used:
  • Clear Stamps:  Snowman (Newton's Nook Frozen Friends), sentiment (Newton's Nook Beautiful Blizzard)
  • Colouring medium:  Prismacolor pencils
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Summer Sky
  • Embossing folder: Taylored Expressions Snowfall
  • Other:  Ranger Glossy Accents (applied to cup); burlap, lace, snowflake sequins (from my stash)
