Today I'm sharing a winter-themed card, made with my new Winnie and Walter stamp set called Winter Wishes. I like to make my holiday cards all year long so that I'm ready with enough cards by the time November/December rolls around. Winnie and Walter is having a big 4th birthday bash celebration this month, so you will want to head over to check out the festivities and challenges!
I created a watercolour background with Distress Oxides using the ink smooshing technique and then white heat-embossed the snowflakes/snowfall.
