A KISS of Inspiration Day 4: Me & My Flakey Friends....

Hi All! Welcome to day 4 of the Kraft-y Hearts Christmas KISS blog share. The inspiration for today's project comes from sketch 24 on page 44 in Make It From Your Heart, vol 1 and the Flakey Friends stamp set. Let's take a look:

The base of card is the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches and is cut from Kraft Cardstock. For the layers, I used patterned paper from the Snowhaven paper pack, White Daisy Cardstock, and more Kraft Cardstock. The horizontal layer is cut from Glacier Cardstock. I used Glacier Exclusive Ink and the snowflake stamps from Flakey Friends to create a tone-on-tone strip of patterned cardstock, and layered it with some retired chevron ribbon. The sentiment and snowman layers are popped up with both regular and thin dimensional adhesive to give the layers more visual interest. I stamped the sentiment in Glacier Exclusive Ink.The snowman is stamped in Black Stāz-On Ink and then heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I then used my water brush with a variety of exclusive inks to color him in. Finally, I added some Red Enamel Hearts to give the card a little extra somethin'.

Here a a few close-ups:

 And here is one more look at the card:
