Winter Birthday Card

December 8, 2013

I took my inspiration for today's card from these photos, that I saved to my Pinterest board.

I built my own rustic snowman with some patterned papers!

All papers are from Christmas Day 6x6 paper pad (Carta Bella). To build the snowman, I die cut three circles, crumpled them, distressed the edges using a paper distresser, and added some Antique Linen ink and Vintage Photo ink (Distress Ink). His hat, nose and scarf were cut out with scissors, then were distressed. I drew his eyes and mouth with a gel pen, and sponged some light pink ink for his cheek.

The sentiment is from Square Sayings set (Simon Says Stamps). It was stamped on a speech bubble with Rich Cocoa ink (Memento).

I am entering this card to Charisma Cardz Challenge #47 (All Distressed) and Seize the Birthday Challenge (Wintery Birthday).

Thank you for stopping by!
