Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!


This little snowman from Stamp Fairy is all ready for it. Shovel in hand, he is all set for a day in a winter wonderland of the fresh white stuff. I have coloured him with my copics and shaded the background with Prismas. I then applied a good dose of stickles to the snow for some holiday sparkle.



This wasn't my original card idea but when it dawned on me that I could set this cutie in his very own land of snow I decided I would have a try at making my very first shaker card. I had purchased some little shaker box pouches a few weeks ago from my local scrapbook store and they had been sitting on my desk waiting for just the right image. I have used tinsel glitter from Martha Steward to create the snow.

The card has been put together usingpaper from a K and Company stack that I picked up yesterday. A few punches and a simple sentiment were all that were needed to finish it off. I can almost hear him singing now... Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
