Hello Snow!



In just a little over a week I'll be on my way to San Antonio to attend Escape- The Angel Company's winter retreat. I'm so excited to see my fellow angels and learn new projects to share with all my stamping friends! I'll also get to see our brand new first edition magalog up close and personal- yeah! I've been working on cards to trade at Escape and wanted to share one with you.. I used the adorable new set Hello Snow which is on sale right now during our half off promotion for only 4.48!! What a deal! I love these little snowmen.. so cute and adorable. It's a little hard to tell in the scan but I used the swiss dots embossing folder on the white cardbase to add texture. The paper is from Kaleidoscope Boys Wing it paper pad- so fun too! I colored him with Tombow markers and a blending pen to get the water colored look. I distressed the edges of the blue cardstock with my edge distresser- a tool I totally love and added a button from the Hillary embellishment jar for a final touch.
