Think Snow....

Hi Everyone;

Hmm, it seems that Christmas is less than six months away and this means that it is time to start making Christams cards.  To help us with some creativity, the High Hopes Stamps' vault has been opened and the "Christmas in July" Release has tumbled out.

Today's card is one of three posts using the adorable Snowman Mini Set.  The next two Fridays, will be highlighting other types of cards and a suggestion.

After stamping each image and colouring them with copic markers, I used a Circle die and a Pleated Circles die to cut them out.  I also inked the outer edges of each snowmen and snowlady.  Some snowflake ribbon and an embellishment finished off the card.
