A Frosty Christmas

 This wintery design features Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's "Farmhouse Christmas" sentiment and an adorable "Frosty" die from Spellbinders. All wrapped up with a bit of glitter and shine!

The base of the card is made up of patterned decorator paper from Authentique's "Alpine" pad. I love the shades of blues and greens and the fabulous prints throughout the pad. Fabulous!

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store clear "Farmhouse Christmas" sentiment was stamped directly onto the decorator paper with Tim Holtz Distress Chipped Sapphire ink, using a Tonic Stamp Platform for perfect results every time.

This cute snowman is die cut with Spellbinder's "Mr. and Mrs. Snowman" die set. I die cut the swirly snowman top layer, then traced the snowman shape onto a piece of matching white cardstock. I hand cut the traced piece to fit behind the swirly top snowman layer, but before adhering the two together, I applied Tombow Aqua Liquid Glue and Stampendous Crystal Ultra Fine Translucent glitter to the back piece. I also colored the area on the solid snowman's face with black and orange copic markers so that it would show through the top layer's eyes, nose, and mouth. A scarf and top hat complete this jolly fellow.

Thermoweb 3D Foam pieces were used to mount the snowman onto the background. 

All linked supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

A note to add: Stamp Simply is offering $3.95 shipping to US addresses through the end of the year; $5.00 off international orders. Great time to stock up on those heavier, bulkier items!

Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have a great remainder to your week!
