Candy Cane for Snowman (FTHS)

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made with the Free Stamp of the Month over at From the Heart Stamps.  The image is called Candy Cane for Snowman and I coloured it with Prismacolor pencils. I added Liquid Pearls for the snowfall and loose glitter around his body and along the snowbank.


The patterned paper scrap is from BoBunny and the die-cut border is from MFT Dotted Scallop Trio. The snowflakes are from Impression Obsession and I die-cut them from gold glitter paper.  The background is embossed with Cuttlebug Charles, and I rounded the corners on just the upper-right.


I would like to join the following challenges:
  1. Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Use Some Gold UE (WINNER)
  2. Die-Cut Diva's Favourite Holiday (Christmas) 1/4
  3. DRS Designs Inspired by Colour UE

Your card is really sweet Kitty. I think snowmen are my favourite Christmas images and I love sparkle on Christmas cards. The snow looks lovely too. Barbxx

Those liquid pearls look so perfect as snowflakes! Such a super adorable card! That textural background works great in combo with the snowflakes because they echo the overall design! You're such a clever designer!

This is a very sweet card, well done on getting ahead. Thanks for all the comments on my blog,and for becoming a follower. The journal is my first attempt at anything like that. It was the challenge that got me into it, and the fact it was a dictionary challenge which intrigued me. I'm not sure if I can journal out of a dictionary lol.
