Tall Warm Winter Wishes with a Wide Ribbon

Here's my tall card for the Limited Supplies challenge over on Split Coast. I made my card 8x4.

I used two different snow theme designer papers and this cute stitched snowman from the Sewing Box Christmas Set by Waltzingmouse Stamps . I stamped snowflakes from the set and punched them out with a circle punch then stamped the words over them. (not sure if you can see the green snowflakes on the green paper in the pic but you can IRL! click on the picture to see it a little bigger) I highlighted the snowflakes with some dots using a white gel pen.

I stamped the snowman on a Spellbinders tag - then stamped him on white. I cut out the snowman on the inside line and layered over the tag with foam dimensionals.

I colored him with Copics. The great ribbon is from Sharon's No Time to Stamp Ribbon Shop. I also used this weeks Split Coast sketch for my card.

It was fun making a different size card for a change but I will have to make a special envelope to fit it!

Thanks for stopping by today!
