Thanks Snow Much

Hello, everybody!  Today I'm sharing another winter card but this time it's a thank-you card!


I started with the background, which I made using the ink-smooshing technique and Distress Inks.  It looked a bit plain so I added stencilled snowflakes.  I adhered a die-cut snowy landscape and then die-cut the panel with a stitched scalloped rectangle.  I coloured the snowman and kitty with markers, fussy-cut, and then adhered with foam tape.  I tied some twine at the top, with a tiny tag that says "hugs" and a metal snowflake charm.  At the bottom of the card, I stamped the sentiment. Finally I matted the die-cut panel on kraft cardstock.

Clear stamps: STAMPlorations Winter Chill (snowman and sentiment), STAMPlorations Purrfectly Pawsome (cat), A. Jillian Vance DieLuxe Tiny Tags (hugs word)
Ink: Background (Distress Inks Broken China, Tumbled Glass), stencilling (Stampin' Up Tempting Turquoise), stamping (Lawn Fawn Jet Black, Versafine Onyx Black)
Stencil:  Hot Off the Press Snowfall (I was unable to find a link so it might be retired)
Dies: Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangles, Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders, A. Jillian Vance DieLuxe Tiny Tags 
Other:  American Crafts twine, snowflake charm

I believe this is the same snowman as on your purple card from last week? It certainly looks different here. This is traditionally wintery, with all the blue and white. Awesome background! Sweet!
