Non-traditional card... take 2

I knew you'd be back.. And I think you'll be pleasantly happy that you did.... Are you ready ???? I absolutely love how this card came out. The coloring is so soft and of course it uses not only 1 of my favorite colors.. "chocolate chip" but is also uses 1 of my favorite holiday images.. a "snow man"..

This card was made using a 51/2" x 11" piece of chocolate card stock so that when it was folded it would be 5 1/2" square.. To make the snowman, I stamped the image in timber stazon on very vanilla card stock and colored with my copic markers and blender pen for the soft subtle coloring. Once my snowman was stamped and colored, I stamped my snowflakes using versa mark and then embossed them with iridescent ice embossing powder. I then distressed around the edges using Tim Holtz distressing walnut ink. How did I make the ice you ask? Crystal Effects. Is this not the cutest.

The sentiment is a Making Memories holiday rub on. Here's the remainder of the recipe..

Card stock.. chocolate chip, soft sky, very vanilla and basic gray figgy pudding
Accessories.. Making Memories rub-on, crystal effects, dimensional pop ups, SUP chocolate wide satin ribbon

Have a fabulous weekend everyone and, Happy Stamping :)
NOTE... whoops sorry.. This snowman is from SweetMissDaisy's.... Whippersnapper Designs... I love them and she's having a new release on January 1st.. :)
