Winking Snowman - Gift Card Holder

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
Come join our monthly challenge...and you could be the next winner of two High Hopes Stamps of your choice.  The details for the December Challenge - Christmas/Winter theme can be found here

As Christmas is rapidly approaching, I thought I would make a quick and easy gift card holder that could be used for those "not-so easy" people to buy for on your lists!!!

Inside of the Gift Card Holder
This is Winking Snowman (RR001), along with the sentiments called Warm Winter Wishes (G310) and To:/From (E068).  I just love snowmen images...they are just so adorable!

I started by colouring the image with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I added some Glossy Accents to the snowman's nose.  Gold Stickles were used on the buckle of the snowman's hat.  I just gotta have some glitter on my cards-LOL!

The image was fussy cut out.  The die used to cut the gift card holder is from MFT.  The pattern paper is from Doodlebug - Sugarplums 6x6 Paper Pad, along with some SU Pacific Point and White cardstock.  A couple of pieces of Washi Glitter Gold Tape was cut into narrow strips and applied over top of the Doodlebug designer paper.  I thought this helped to coordinate well with the gold glitter on the snowman's buckle on his hat.  It was then time to add the image with foam tape for some dimension.  To add a bit more glitter, 4 YNS Candy Lane Glittered Gumdrops were also included around the main image.    
For the sentiments on the inside of the gift card holder, I used white embossing powder.  To complete this card holder, a gift card was tucked away inside.  

Supplies Used:
Ink - Tombow Markers - N15, N35, N95, 723, 535, 992, 761, and 491.  Versamark Ink Pad, Black Embossing Powder and White Embossing Powder.
Paper - Doodlebug-Sugarplums 6x6 Paper Pad; SU Pacific Point and White Cardstock.
Misc - Glossy AccentsGold Stickles, MFT-Gift Card Holder Die, YNS-Candy Lane Glittered Gumdrops, Washi Glitter Tape-Gold, Water Brush, Foam Tape, and Glue Dots.
