Snow Birds Card Challenge

The first card challenge of the year over at Cards in Envy is "Snow Birds". The challenge is to make a card that features snow in some form and there must be at least one bird.

So here is my card for this challenge.

This stamp set came to mind when I saw the challenge. It is from Impression Obsession. For the background I took white card stock and used a snowflakes embossing folder. I decided to give it a little shimmer. I used a frost white paint I got a few years ago from Stampin' Up that I brushed over the embossed surface.

I stamped the snowman with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with black embossing powder. I colored with my Copic Markers. The snowman's body I covered with Rock Candy Distressed Stickles. I fussy cut the image and then added foam tape for dimension.

I plan to send this card to my granddaughter Remi.

Thanks for taking a look.

Have a good one.
