….and here is my interpretation of it:

Cold And Cuddly_thumb[15]

I’ve used the Cold and Cuddly set from Stampin’ Up! 

The base of the card or foldover is 5 1/2” x8 1/2”

The White mat has been run through the Big Shot with our new embossing folder called “Petals-a-Plenty”. I love this Embossing folder. Byt the way the white mat is cut to 4” x 5 1/4”

The next mat is the Bashful Blue mat and is cut to 3 1/8” x 3 5/8” and the image white piece is 3” x 3 1/2”.

The bottom three pieces are cut to 4” wide and torn…then sponged and layered to look like drifts of snow.

I used Bashful Blue Ink to match and of course what winter scene could do with out our Dazzling Diamonds…….very sparkly on the drifts of snow, ice and below the ice. I’ve popped up the cute little penguin by cutting him out and using a dimensional. I actually stamped the penguin in Basic Gray and removed the gray from the heart with a Blender Pen and then took my Red Marker and painted it red…huffed on it and stamped to get the two colors. That’s it….hope you enjoyed it. This card was actually a sneak peak at my Christmas Camp…everyone loved it.

So if you’re in the Jacksonville, Florida area and would like to stamp…..just let me know. I’d love for you to come to my next event.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back real soon.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!
