You Make My Heart Melt

melt_2
Helloooo…. well.. an other quick Winter card using a snowman image :-) When i saw this new In2Stamps snowman, i immediately envisioned him with some brown papers and kind of vintage looking. But i wanted to go '”fresh” and so i have looked though my summer papers and found some sheets in my Basic Grey 6x6 papers  “Urban Praire” that looked really nice and worked for me – to make a winter card. One of the plain papers got a embossing with Cuttlebug Snowflake folder and i have added some star gems in some of the centers. To create the “icicles” on the top and the bottom of the pink paper i used Mono Multi glue and than generously sprinkled Stampin up “Dazzeling Diamond Dust” over it. Just on the snowman and broom i have used Stickles cause it gave me more control where to add it.

Now that the pics are on my blog i think.. hmmm i could have thread a little ribbon in pink or yellow though that slot of that big snowflake. Oh, well.. i have made that card while i was watching Criminal Minds :-) and i think i was just distracted lol
