MTSC Let it Snow



Happy Tuesday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card with you made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge Don't you just love this sketch?

I wanted to make a very non-traditional Christmas card for a very "non" traditional friend. I was inspired to use these colors by this cutie made by Pam Speidel.

I used the stamp set "Big on Christmas" and the "Snow Buddies" stamp set. I stamped the "Let it Snow" onto some whisper white card stock and then stamped it again onto some scrap white and then stamped the large snowman from "Snow Buddies" onto scrap. I colored in the S-N-and W with my sage shadow marker. I then cut out my large snow man and mounted it over the snowman head on the main image panel with some dimensionals. I cut out the hat from the original image and added it to my big snowman. I then stamped the large snowman onto some of the DS paper and cut out the scarf and added it to the snowman. I used my black marker to color in every other square on the scarf and also the hat. I hand cut out holly leaf from some scrap garden green card stock and added it to the hat. I added a couple dots of red stickles for the holly berries on his hat.

The base of the card is basic gray and I followed that with some sage shadow and the DS paper is from the Nouveau Chic pack. I added some sheer white 7/8 inch ribbon and three snowflakes to the top corner. After all was put together I added some stardust stickles to the snow letters.
