I {Heart} Snow!

Is it snowing? Has it snowed? Are you wishing for snow???

Okay, this isn't a multiple choice question type of blog post... but they've sure talked a lot about snow in the news and I'm trying to keep up with current events. LOL!

Seriously, I hope if you've been bombarded with snow, like some areas have, that you're staying warm and safe... and having some crafting fun, too.

I used two stamp sets from the SumMore Fun store to make it. Raisin Boat's Winter Heart and Sole provided the gorgeous tree and snowflakes and Victorine Originals Watercolor Snowman provided the specks of snow, the snowbank, and the sentiment.

I first stamped the tree with Memento Cottage Ivy Ink. Once the ink was dry, I dabbed Versamark Ink on the tree and added white embossing powder to it. I wanted the tree to look like it had snow hanging on it. The snowflakes, specks of snow, and snow bank are also stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The cardstock that I stamped the images on is white... YES, white! I sponged Ranger Faded Jeans Distress Ink on it after heat embossing all of the images.

A fun card to make... and I was toasty warm while making it, too (thanks to a furnace that seems to be running constantly).

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
