Friends in My Heart

It's Thursday and that means a new sketch
Here is this week's sketch #128!

I love this sketch and will be using it a lot! Today I took a few liberties, and made the circle a chipboard heart, and the smaller circle my snowman. The banner turned into my ric ric "snow." For my card I chose Lawn Fawn's super cute Making Frosty Friends and coordinating dies - available at i {heart} papers!
I stamped my snowman on Ultrasmooth White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored in the nose and hat brim with a Spectrum Noir marker. This is like playing paper dolls -- all of the dies make it so easy! The hat and scarf were stamped right on the designer paper, and then I cut it all out with the coordinating dies.

I stamped the background on SU! Crumb Cake using the snowflake stamp and white pigment ink. My chipboard heart has been sitting on my desk for literally a year, waiting to be used! So I thought it would be cute with the sentiment! It was stamped with Versamark Strawberry pigment ink, and then embossed with a glittery red embossing powder. My snow is a glittery ric rac from my stash of oodles of ribbons and trims. I used Zva Dimensionals and 1/4" Scor-Tape to hold everything together.  My designer paper is Echo Park's So This Is Christmas 6x6. The total card is 5" square.
Linked supplies available at i {heart} papers!
