Mr Snowman

Hello Blog friends - if you are a friend of mine on facebook - you will know the story of the UGLY CARD - I am happy to share a revamped version of it - I am happy with it now - but that wasn't always the case....


I have used the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine to cut the adorable Mr. And Mrs. Snowman Spellbinder® Shapeabilities®- how adorable are they?!   The background is the Holiday Magic  Spellbinders® M-Bossabilities™ folders and has also been embossed using the Grand Calibur® Machine.

I have also used  IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Ink in Dessert Sand and Summer Sky, along with  IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink full ink pad in Onyx Black. A Darkroom Door image and the Create-A-Flake Five Spellbinder® Shapeabilities® for the layered snowflake.

You can see all of the details below - it took the addition of white to make it pop and make me happy with it.

This card is the following challenges:
 Crafting By Designs - Anything goes
