Snow Special

Hello! My Mom got me the new MS big snowflake trim punch for Christmas and I was anxious to play with it!! It went perfectly with this newly released "Snow Special" snowman set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

I cut out my snowman and popped him up on top of a label 4 die that I had softly sponged in matching colors. The label 4 die is raised up also. The background DP was embossed and then softly sanded, it really made the snowflakes pop. I like the distressed look it added also. I added flower soft to the ear muffs for more texture. I really like the soft girly feel of this card! Thanks for stopping by!
