Merry Monday # 235 Snowman

Hi Friends!  My BFF Linda is the Merry maker this week asking for a snowman, snow woman or a snow family on your Merry Monday Christmas Card!!
When I saw this darling die from Penny Black I just fell in love!
Here is what I used on this card:
Impression Obsession background stamp: Pine Trees
PB die: Snowman Joy
PTI Botanical Blocks IV: sentiment

I used my Misti and after placing this rubber stamp in the Misti, I used a versamark pen to touch it on the edges of the branches, then I heat embossed with white powder.  After that was done, I put it back in my Misti and stamped the trees with PTI Pinefeather ink. I used distress ink for the background sky.  I also used some PTI smokey shadow that I sponged on the seems like you can never get a clean white snowman here where I live because we never get enough of that white stuff!   Technically I should have added grass all over his body!  *wink
Won't you join us and get a big start on your Christmas cards for 2017?  Trust me, come November you will be so happy to just address the envelopes and get them in the mail!
Check out what the design team has made for your inspiration!

Heart Hugs, friends!
