Thanks Snow Much

Hi friends and Happy 2015!  Hope everyone had a great holiday!  I really enjoyed spending time with family and friends, but it is now time to get back to reality.  On a happier note, I have a card to share with you that I made for the current Lawnscaping Challenge #97.

The challenge is to design a winter-themed project using some beautiful Pinterest-inspired images.  I love this idea because I'm not ready to put away my holiday stamps yet.  I came up with a playful thank you card perfect for winter:

I started by making the snowy background with distress inks (Faded Jeans and Evergreen Bough).  After inking the background, I used white embossing paste with the Falling Snow stencil. 

I knew I wanted to partially die cut the snowman and bird.  This was my first attempt at partial die cutting (my friend Lizzy has a great video tutorial on this technique) and it was fun!  I can't wait to try it again!

After stamping and coloring the snowman and bird, I embossed the thanks sentiment and snowflakes with iridescent embossing powder to add some shimmer to the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy crafting!
