KISS of Inspiration: Day Two...Frosty the Snowman...

Hi All! Welcome to Day Two of the Kraft-y Hearts Christmas KISS blog share. Today's inspiration comes from page 46 of Make It From Your Heart, vol 1 and the Christmas Post stamp set. Let's take a look:

The card base is a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches, and is cut from Colonial White cardstock. I used patterned papers from the Yuletide Carol paper pack for the base layer on the card front. All layers are inked around the edges with Cashmere Exclusive ink to give them an antiqued, slightly distressed look. The sentiment banner is cut from Colonial White cardstock and layered on Ruby cardstock. The sentiment itself is stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed using gold embossing powder. It's popped up with dimensional adhesive.

The snowman is sitting atop layers of Colonial White and Ruby cardstocks, tan (gold) glitter paper, and Yuletide Carol paper, which is popped up on the glitter paper with dimensional adhesive. I stamped the snowman on White Daisy cardstock using black Stāz-On ink and then heat embossed him with clear embossing powder. I then used my water brush and various Exclusive inks to color him in. (You could also use the ShinHan Touch Twin alcohol ink markers, but I wanted a softer look on this card.) I then fussy cut him and popped him up using dimensional adhesive.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

And here is the card one more time:

I hope you were inspired by today's card. Tune in tomorrow for more inspiration.

And now hop on over and see what the incredibly inspiring Lynn Darda has for you at From My Bungalow.
