I colored the snowman in with a Blender Pen and the following ink pads~ Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery, Marina Mist and Cajun Craze. At the top I lightly stamped the snowflake in Crumb Cake ink. Behind it I layered a piece of Marina Mist card stock, I stamped around the edges again with the snowflake in Marina Mist ink. I then put a piece of Certainly Celery card stock behind that and popped it up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish off the card I stamped Merry Christmas from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Cajun Craze ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. I punched it out with the Curly Label Extra-Large Punch, sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. At the top I added a bow I made with the Crochet Trim 5/8 Victoria in the center is a Designer Button Neutrals with Hemp Twin ran through it.
