My Snowbuddy

Happy Sunday everyone,

I would like to share a card with you I made for Whimsie Doodles as their November Guest Artist. This cute little guy is called Snowbuddy and is part of the Santa and Friends Collection.   I decided to move away from the more traditional red and green Christmas colours and went for some pink and light blue instead - I think he, or maybe it should be a she....suits it!

For the card base I used my newly purchased Simon Says Falling Snow stencil and some embossing Paste.  I love how it came out! - this stencil is going to get alot of use.

Whimsie Doodles - Santa and Friends Digital Stamps 
Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Ciricle Stax
Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders Die
Memory Box - Crystalline Border Die
Clearly Besotted - Modern Christmas Stamp - Sentiment
Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste
Wink of Stella - White glitter pen
White Glitter Paper
Blue Ribbon from Stash

I coloured the die-cut background with my copics and added glitter snowflakes.
The 'snow' is outlined with Wink of Stella White Glitter pen - in the photo it just looks like a white line, but I promise you in real life it actually looks glittery!  I can't seem to make a card without adding at least one form of glitter!

Here is a close-up:
