S is for Snow

S is for Snow.   I love snow.  I love the white, cold, blanket that covers everything in the area.
I love the look snow gives to a space in nature.  Something about snow, makes me feel a sense of newness.  It is hard to believe that all that white stuff is made from individual snowflakes that are all completely unique.
Just like we are created different, snowflakes are each different from the next.  This reminds me of how God created us each different.  Can you imagine if God had created us all the same?  It would be a pretty boring world, don't you think?
FYI:  Let me say that I in Southern California where we do not get snow.  I love snow, but I often wonder if my love for snow would be different if I lived some place where it does snow a lot.

The base of the card is Pool Play Cardstock.  I started the card by stamping the three different sizes of snowflakes from the Snow Burst stamp set with Beach Breeze ink.  I then took Whip Cream Cardstock and a sponge and swirled a light layer of the ink over the card to soften the look.
I die cut the Doily from Vellum paper, cut in half and attached to the top half of the card.
I then die cut the irregular scallop from the Border Basics set in Lavender Fusion cardstock and attached this to the middle of the card.  I also cut a strip of Winter Fresh pattern paper, cut one side into a banner and attached it to the card.
I wrapped Whip Cream Thread around the card several times.  Then I created a fluffy bow and tied it on to the card with Whip Cream Thread .
I then took Winter Fred and stamped with River Stone, the snowman on Whip Cream Cardstock and then again on Orange Creamcicle Cardstock for the carrot nose.  I then stamped the Winter Fred with Hazelnut Blend ink on Pool Play Cardstock for the branch arms and again with Lavendar Fusion ink on Pool Play Cardstock for the scarf.  Lastly, I stamped the hat with Black Licorice ink on Whip Cream Cardstock.  I colored the strip on the hat with colored pencils.  I paper pieced him together and used foam squares to attach it.
To finish the card, I colored the eyes, mouth and buttons with a Sharpie to make them black and added some Sparkle Drops randomly around the image.  Enjoy!


  1. That is an adorable card :)

    We lived in Montana for 8 years; I loved the first snow of the year and the March/April snows because they melted pretty darn quick. I wasn't crazy about the January snows :)


  2. I love snow, but I hate the grey slushy mess it leaves behind!
