Tall Country Snowman

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
Happy Saturday Friends!  I have one last Christmas/Winter card to share with you this month...but, I am not sure everyone wants to really think about snow these days!
This is Tall Country Snowman (S035) and Think Snow sentiment (E044).  Such an adorable country snowman image!!!  
The image was stamped on Xpress It cardstock with a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad using my Misti Stamping Tool.  The image was coloured with Copic Markers.  Once the colouring was finished, Glossy Accents were applied on the snowman's carrot nose, the mouse's nose, and the beak on the bird.
For the card base, I chose some SU Kraft cardstock.  The designer paper is from Carta Bella-Warm & Cozy 6x6 Paper Pad.  It's a bit difficult to see ALL the glitter on this card, but in real life it is quite sparkly.  Some SU Night of Navy Ink was sponged around the main image, then dry glitter was applied.  A Zig-Wink of Stella pen (yellow glitter) was used on all of the stars to add even more sparkle!  Foam tape was applied to adhere the sentiment to add some dimension. 
To complete this card, some liquid pearl dots were added and a snowflake punch was used behind the sentiment.  Clear rhinestones were also added on the centre of the snowflake and snow part of the sentiment.  Such a fun and sparkly card to make, and my mom is still cleaning up my mess from all the dry glitter I used! hahahaha!

Beautiful snowman and a beautiful card. Indeed, I am also not thinking about snow and making cards with this theme. I have that put into a box and in october I will go making such kind of cards.
Great job from everyone that have made christmas/wintercards in this time. Beautiful to see and the various cards with the images.
