Cold and Frosty

I'm back with my DT card for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge and the theme Cold and Frosty - well better than wet and windy which is all we seem to be getting here in Cornwall!  Our sponsor for this challenge is Whiff of Joy, please stop by the CCT blog to read about the prize and see the rest of the DTs creatiouns.

This cute LOTV snow family stamp came before Christmas, but I never got around to doing anything with it then .. .. so remembering where I'd hidden it I had some fun.  Keeping to my resolution to reduce the paper stash, I've chosen a couple of scraps of digi papers by Cuddly Buddly then coloured the stamped image with my Copics to match.

Here's the card and I've also kept to my keep it flat rule so postage won't cost a fortune next Christmas!  I've added the embossed faux stitching to the layers, I think you can just about make it out, and crystal Stickles to the snow for extra sparkle.  The snowflakes are cut from a scrap of 'mess about' that I'd put through the cracked ice embossing folder then dabbed with a pearl dabber - so lots of extra shimmer if you catch the light just right .. .. which of course I never seem to be able to manage!

Just two Marianne Design dies used on this card, the faux embossing with LR0161. then the big fancy snowflake and waste hearts from it with LR0185.

Just a couple of challenges I can enter with my frosty card, the ABC Christmas challenge has started a new round through the alphabet and it's A for anything goes, Papertake Weekly are also doing anything goes, and it's the same on the new Lili of the Valley monthly challenge too.
