Now, here’s my card

SkiingSnowman

For my card, I used this fun Skiing Snowman digi…too cute right?! He’s colored with Copics and some Sakura white gel pen.

For my background I stamped some of my ‘rubber’ CHF images, Christmas Expressions and Joyeux Noel. The snowflakes were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Holographic and Antique Gold embossing powder, then sponged with Distress ink for some emboss resist.

I thought he’d look cute flying down the slopes… I tore strips of cardstock and laid them at an angle on my base, then trimmed the edges even.

SkiingSnowman snow

All the edges have Icicle Stickles just like glistening snow!

Hi Dawn~

Wow! The first thing that caught my eye were the very colorful snowflakes. They really seemed to glisten different colors like real snow does. And, I could not figure out how you had this very cool snowman out skiing on a real life hill! I was so glad you told us how you made this hill come to life and be so realistic. So creative! This is a wonderful card, Dawn!

He IS Able!
