A stamped snowman and fox card by Teri |

This was such a fun card to make! I created the background by cutting several snowflakes with the new Huge Snowflakes dies. I lightly (very, very, very lightly) sponged sponged some black ink where I was going to place the large snowflakes and then added them to it. (Side note: I actually cut all the snowflakes from white cardstock and then added color with ink to some of them before I got to creating. Could have saved time by just cutting them from colored cardstock, but I decided not to.)

Once I added the big snowflakes, I added a few small ones, as well as a few white Nuvo Crystal Dots.


The snowman and fox were stamped and die-cut with the new Winter Greetings stamps and Winter Greetings Icons dies. I colored them in with good ol’ alcohol ink markers. I also added a stamped sentiment to a banner cut with the Vanilla Verbiage Icons dies. For good measure, I sponged a little black ink along the edges of the banner. Anyway, I think it turned out pretty cute. Hope you like it.

  4. Hi Teri 🙂 So glad you didn’t just cut the snowflakes from card stock!!! Your treatment gave them much more character! I would never have thought about the smudge behind them but that really made them pop! Nice coloring on the fox and snowman too! Great job!!! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  5. Cute! Love the little fox especially! Great idea to sponge with a little black ink to make the snowflakes seem really like they had shadows!
