A Warm Winter Wish!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you're doing well and staying warm!
Anyone else excited that January is just about over??  Only about 50 more days until Spring!!  I've had enough of the cold and although we haven't had much snow this Winter, my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone on the Northern East Coast. I can't imagine getting 1, 2, or even 3 feet of snow with a single snow storm, let alone have several of these kinds of storms over a single Winter!! I'm sending a Warm Winter Wish to all of you with my Snowman card today! 

The card front was created using an image and sentiment from DRS Designs.  The Medium Mr. Snowman (242H) was colored with Copic Markers.  Both the image and the Warm Wishes Greeting (611D) were cut out using Nestability dies.  Then, before removing the dies they were sponged with light blue ink. They were both matted with dark purple cardstock and then set aside while I worked on the card front.  

I embossed the light blue card front with a snowflake embossing folder and then sponged the edges with purple ink.  It was matted with white cardstock and then a crimped white panel, lined with purple cardstock was added to the lower portion. Snowflake ribbon embellished the crimped panel and then I adhered the snowman image and sentiment in place as shown. 

The card front was adhered to an A2 (4.25" x 5.5") purple cardstock base and I embellished the back of it with the Especially For You Snowman (239C), to let everyone know that I made this card! 
 Thanks for stopping by, Everyone! Stay safe and warm!
