Snowmen with Birdhouse

Ready for another Christmas Card?  The image for this card is from an OLD wood stamp I had sitting around on a shelf to use one day. I think it is a Penny Black stamp and one day finally came after several years. * Ü*
I stamped the image twice and cut out a set of snowmen and layered with foam tape for some added dimension.
I used Liquid Applique for the snow and then sprinkled with Prisma Glitter for the sparkle.

The Paper used are from a retired paper pack from Close to my Heart called Frosted. I love this paper for snowmen since my favorite colors for them are blues. 
Instead of making it monochromatic like I originally planned, I added a splash of red. That just seemed to really finish off the card. 

Since the little boy snowman is hugging his mama, I thought it only appropriate to add some Red Enamel Hearts from CTMH. 

The inspiration for this card started with a sketch challenge from Techno Stamper.

Bunny Zoe's - Snow
Love to Create - Christmas
Make Me Monday - Glitter
Sparkle n Sparkle - Glitter
