Snowy Hug

This week at 2 Sisters our challenge is to create a card/project using our favorite stamp (rubber or digital).  Snowy Hug is my favorite Christmas stamp from Magnolia Stamps.


I started with a kraft card base. I added a piece of teal card stock.  I cut a smaller piece of teal striped card stock and backed it in kraft card stock. I cut a piece of kraft card stock and punched the bottom edge using an eyelet lace border punch.  I wrapped a piece of teal baker's twine around it 3 times and added it to the bottom of the card.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and backed it in teal card stock and then again in kraft card stock.  I added the image to the middle and tucked the bottom edge in just behind the baker's twine.  I stamped the sentiment on white card stock, backed it in teal card stock and again in kraft card stock and added it to the bottom corner of the card.  I punched a snowflake out of white card stock and then punched a star out of teal card stock. I layered the star onto the snowflake and added it to the bottom corner of the image.  I added a white pearl to the center of the star and 3 more to the upper corner of the card.  I added irridescent glitter glue to the snowflake, and to the image.  I added feldspar glitter glue to the star and to the stars on the sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges....
