Snow Love

Today's card features a super sweet snowman stamp from C.C. Designs called Snow Love, from their Meoples line. Since Valentine's Day is only a week away and everything still looks completely covered with snow, I thought this stamp would be very fitting for a love card.

I started by stamping out the two cut snowmen with black ink, then colored them in with Copics. I kept he coloring super simple. I then colored in the backgrounds - soft blues for the snow and random circles for the backgrounds itself. The random circles are a great way to add color to the background while still keeping it interesting.

I die-cut the scene with a stitched journaling card die. While I had my Bigshot out, I also die-cut a darker pink "love" sentiment, as well as a scalloped rectangle of patterned paper. The patterned paper I used is Love Notes, from Crate Paper.

I made a standard A2 card base (4¼ by 5½") from light pink cardstock. Then I put the card together, adhering the different elements. I used foam tape for the center panel, and Tombow Mono-multi glue at just the top of the sentiment.

As a last touch, I added a heart paperclip to the corner of the snowman panel and a few enamel dots in the opposite corner of the card.
