Today I get to share with you my very first card as guest designer at Creative Stamp Friends.  I am so excited as I will be a guest designer for the months of January, February and March!!! How cool is that!!  So this week the challenge theme is WINTER.  The image I used, Christmas Bunny, is from Wee Stamps.

I started with a white card base.  To it I added layers of light blue and white card stock.  The embossing is done by using a cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils.  I punched snowflakes out of white card stock and mini snowflakes out of light blue card stock.  To get the finished look of each snowflake I layered a light blue snowflake on top of a white snowflake. I added crystal stickles and a white pearl to the center.  I also added crystal stickles to all the white card stock (except the embossed piece), and to the snow on the image. I added carrara marble glitter glue to the fur on the hat. I finished the card by adding 3 white pearls to the upper corner.

The glitter that I added to the hat was part of the Martha Stewart glitter glue set that my kiddos got me as a Christmas gift.  This was the first time that I have used this brand of glitter glue and I LOVE IT! I can't wait to use it again. LOL.
