Snow Friends

Cardstock used is White, Amethyst, and Crystal Blue.

Cut Crystal Blue Cardstock 1/4" smaller then card base.
Stamp snowflakes and snowballs on it with Daisy White Ink. Set aside to dry since the white is a pigment ink and takes longer to dry.

I used Hydrangea Ink to stamp Let It Snow on White Gross Grain Ribbon.

The snowman was stamped with black in the upper half of a piece of white CS.
It was stamped again on a piece of Vellum Paper.

Color in both with Amethyst marker.

Flip vellum over to wrong side and adhere to the white CS under the upper snowman to get a reflective look.

Use white Liquid Applique to fill in the area between the two snowmen, which will also hide the adhesive. Use the liquid applique on the snow balls also. Heat both.

You can add glitter to the snow before heating or you can go over the snow with a glue pen after it's heated and add glitter then.

The ribbon was cut about 1" longer then the card. Adhere the stamped ribbon to the right front of the Crystal Blue cardstock. By doing this, you use less ribbon and the ends are concealed behind the blue CS.

Now adhere the Crystal Blue CS to the card front.
Tie a knot of white ribbon where ever you would like it.

Assemble the rest of the card as shown above.

I also lightly swipped Crystal Blue Ink around the edges of the card. May be done before or after assembly.
