It's snowing again.

I am sure my friends in UK have seen enough snow for this year, but here in Spain we don't see any, so it is a novelty to use it on a card now and then. In fact I rarely make snowy Christmas cards, but last Autumn I bought three Stampendous stamps that caught my eye, and they arrived too late for my cards, so it is time this one saw some ink.
I stamped it with Memento ink in tuxedo black, so that I could add some colour with copic markers. Then I fussy cut it out, and used Tumbled glass DI ink to distress the edges (It doesn't show in my photo, but it is there!).
For the background I cut a pale turquoise base card and a piece of white card to almost cover it. I embossed the white piece in my falling snow EF, and again used Tumbled glass DI to add a little colour to it.
I used some bright white glitter card to cut a snowflake lace strip (Joanna Sheen signature die) and a small snowflake (Gina Marie Designs), and assembled it all. For a final touch I added glitter glue to the snow in my image.
I am entering this card in:-

Lovely card, Kate, the image is so sweet. We've got snow forecast again this weekend, hopefully it won't come to much. xx

This little snowie is so cute, and his wardrobe is most colorful. (of course I love the little bird on his mitten). Like the way you've shaped the main image, and it looks very icy & sparkling with the snowflake and glittered lace border. Hope you're staying cozy in your place! TFS & Hugs

This is really a pretty Christmas ard, Kate. I thought the lacey border strip was metallic ribbon but read you cut it out. It looks so much like lace!
The image is a pretty one. I know it sounds weird to call a snowman pretty, but it is the scene around it and including the falling snow ef background, that is so pretty!
