Snowy Couple!

December First??
I can't believe it's December first already can you?!!I've been busy making a bunch of Christmas cards and this is one of my favourites I've made so far! My card today is very bright, cheerful and showcases the High Hopes Stamps called "Snowy Couple"and "Think Snow"!
I love the Doodlebug Sugar Plums collection! The colours are so bright and cheery and the patterns so much fun! I decided to paper piece the snow couples outfits for a fun change from colouring with markers. I found a new to me product called Liquid Appliqué. It's amazing!! You put it on like a marker and then heat up with your heat tool and voila it puffs up. I used it on the snow below the couple and to make it look like snow in the sky. I also sprinkled glitter on top of the wet product before heating to add some sparkle. The little gumdrop and candy stickers are from the same Doodlebug collection and tie in nicely to complete my card.
The inside sentiment is also from High Hopes Stamps and is titled "Work of Art". Used the MFT Stitched Rectangles for my sentiment and base layer. The bottom border is from Pretty Pink Posh and is from the Stitched Borders 1 set.
Copics Used:
Snow couple: B000, YR04, R11
Hat: T3, T5, T7
Black Gel pen
White Gel Pen
White Liquid Applique

I love how you used the same paper for the boy snowman's scarf and the girl snowman's dress that you used on your card. This is such a cute addition of a pattern on what could have been 'plain' snow people. GREAT card!
