I made a cool background with Distress Inks using the ink smooshing technique and then applied Snow-Tex through a stencil to create a snowfall look. I heat-embossed the snowman in white on a die-cut purple tag, added a die-cut snowflake, and stapled tulle at the top of the tag. The sentiment is heat-embossed in white on a black scrap and then I cut the words apart before adhering them. Along the bottom of the card is a die-cut snowflake border in white.
