Snowman Hugs!



Hello everyone! It sure is nice to get back to my craft room! I have been so busy with the holidays that it's been tough getting back into the swing of things. So I started by making this card to enter into My Craft Spots Monday challenge which is Winter Wonderland and you must include glitter.
I cut the tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More and embossed the background mat with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder. I the took sandpaper and sanded over the embossing to let the white show through. The snowman was cut from Christmas Cheer and I added silver stickles to his scarf and misted him with Pearl Glimmer Mist. I added some fibers to the bottom of the tag as well as the top. I made a mat and stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Snow Much Fun stamp set. The background of the card I embossed with the Cuttlebug Textile folder and added dots of clear stickles. To finish I punched some snowflakes and layered them together and added gems to the centers.
I hope you all like my card and thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
