I wanted to do a very frosty card with a Victorian Flair to it, so I decided to combine some jewelry with this cute little snowman carrying his gifts and cocoa.
The image is from CTMH Christmas Post. I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto watercolor paper and then heat embossed with clear powder. I then used a few different mediums to color him including: CTMH watercolors, CTMH water color pencils, and gel pens.
I sponged in some Sky background. My shape is from the Artistry Cartridge.
I filled the shaker with white glitter, beads and white sequins. The frame is cut from White Pines.
This beautiful card base is from the Artfully Sent Cartridge....which just happens to be included in the CTMH Cyber Sale....along with that cute snowflake charm! If you are interested, be quick! That sale ends tonight!
Anyway, I added the CTMH shimmer trim colored with Sky ink, the blue bow from stash along with the jewels!
So, there it is..my Victorian Snowman Shaker Card! He is off to:
