I love doing snow scenes on my winter holiday cards, but the problem with snow on a card is that it is white. You either have to spend forever coloring a background, or you have to paper piece. I do a lot of paper piecing.
the sentiment just right on the blue paper and the white paper, but I used a much easier technique - I used a larger piece of white than I needed, and once I lined the words up, I cut off the excess.The sentiment is embossed in white on the blue, and in denim blue on the white, so it looks really crisp. I love the selection of vertical sentiments at SweetStamps - you really can't find them like this anywhere else.
I have a lot of snowman stamps, but I had to have this Stitched Button Snowman because of his country craft look and because it is an easy shape to cut out. Take a closer look at the holly berries - they are made with the same buttons that are on the snowman! They fit perfectly in a quarter inch punch. I put Diamond Glaze on all the buttons for a little extra shine and dimension. This was so much fun to make!
Love your sentiment embossing and the buttons on the Holly Berries- how cool is that! I love that lil snowman too : )
Love your design and how you embossed the sentiment in 2 different colors on the layers. Cute corners with the holly leaves and buttons. Sweet!!
Wow what a lovely card! Fab Idea with the buttons.
