Let it snow..

Hello merry people!! Finally got around to making my Christmas cards:-) ahhh I love this season, it's the best time of the year by far...

Todays card features my lovely Hero arts stamps and some gorgeous My Minds Eye patterned paper from their new Christmas collection:-)

I made a cute Christmassy frame with the patterned paper using my spellbinders dies and then got stamping, I stamped the little penguin twice (so that I could paper piece his jacket and hat separately) I have glittered his collar and pom pom on the hat.. although the flash got rid of all traces of it:-)
Trees were also stamped and coloured with my Copics, and then given a little bit of sparkle with some red and silver stickles..
Background was clear embossed and and inked with some Ranger distress ink.

And here is a close up:-)... of my Jolly Penguin!
I also rounded the corners to soften the look of the card a bit..

Supplies List:
Hero Arts stamps: CL366, AR163, CG211
Sentiment stamp: Kelly Panacci 'Christmas' set
Patterned paper : My Minds Eye
Spellbinders die and Cuttlebug
Zing clear embossing powder
Ranger distress ink in Tumbled glass
Thank you so much for dropping by:-)
Happy stamping!
