Christmas Snowman

I've been making some Christmas cards for OWH and this is my final project for this month. I took dark green Bazill cardstock and stamped then heat embossed white stars all over it. I then cut out a window and attached the tree scene in the cutout. The snow on the trees is Liquid Applique, the snow under the MS fence punch is FlowerSoft. I then popped little Santa Snowman (a free digi image from Spyder's Corner) onto the front of the card for a 3D effect. The trim on Santa's suit is Liquid Pearls and he's colored with Copics. As the card has to be 4 1/4 x 5 1.2 (A2 size) I had to cut off one of the trees from my Magnolia stamp so the image would fit. Now I have a little tree left over to use on another card. One with Edwin in his snowsuit maybe? I'll think on it a while :)
