The snowman image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a circle of ivory card stock cut with a nestabilities die, then colored with Copic markers. I stamped another image onto scrap card stock so I could color and cut an extra flower to adhere next to the greenery on his hat brim, which was embellished with a little bit of ultra fine pine Flower Soft. There's also a teeny bit of ultra fine citrus crush at the flower's center. Instead of catching a snowflake in his hand, this warm, handsome fella is holding a great big ivory Flower Soft snow ball, so you'd better duck! ;) He's ready to launch it!
The layout began with a scrap of Graphic 45 "The Night Before Christmas" designer paper adhered to a red card stock base. I added a bit of sweater-textured red card stock created with a cuttlebug folder and white craft ink, and a sentiment from JustRite's Christmas Sentiments and Verses. A strip of kraft card stock, a country blue satin bow, and a few button-trimmed ivory snowflakes punched with a Martha Stewart punch tie the whole design together. Everything was inked with Tim Holtz tea-dye distress ink to give it that timeworn, warm country Christmas look.
I would have liked to stitch some of the edges of the paper, but didn't dare. My sewing machine has not been working properly lately (puttputtputtzooom!)...it needs to make a trip to the repairman for a tuneup! It is as old as the hills! I'm almost afraid to take it in because I don't want him to tell me that it is now obsolete!
