A Cute Christmas Snowman

Good evening friends!

I finally had some time today to make a card, but I'm not sure how happy I am with the way it turned out. The top looks a little awkward to me with all of the white. I love the snowman, the snowflakes & the colors have grown on me. At first I wasn't really crazy about the paper, etc. I loved the designs, but when I think of Christmas, I think Reds & Greens. This snowman was so cute, that I couldn't stop myself from getting this set.

For the coloring, I used the ink in the top of the ink pads with a blender pen. I used the Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to color in his hat. I used the new Sizzix Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets when die cutting the snowflakes. Then all I had to do, was peel off the back and stick them to the front of the card. It was a little easier said than done. I'm not sure if I needed more shim behind the plates, but it took me a little while to get all of the little accents poked out.
