Christmas Easel Card

I made this Christmas card using this Magnolia stamp called Snowy Hug. I used the colors white, brandy wine and vintage pink. I added crystal stickles to all the white cardstock. I added brandy wine with white dots ribbon and added pink gemstones to the ribbon.

I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and added crystal stickles to the snow, hats and tilda's jacket. I also added pink gemstones for the buttons on the snowman.

I punched snowflakes out of white cardstock and smaller snowflakes out of brandy wine cardstock using two snowflake punches from Martha Stewart Crafts. I added the smaller snowflake to the larger one and added a pink gemstone in the center and crystal stickles to the white snowflake.

I did faux stitching around the card using a black zig memory pen. The sentiment I used is "May this Christmas be as special as you are. I added pink gemstones to the upper left corner to finish the card.
