The embossed background was made with a Cuttlebug Snowflake folder. After I made this first card I just kept trying out different holiday colored prints behind him. (Recollections Holiday Prints purchased on clearance several years ago.)
The silver matted layer is also from a clearance pack of Recollections paper called Silver and Gold Cardstock. I used Prismacolor pencils for the coloring. I didn't want to hide any of the snowman image with a sentiment strip so I solved the problem with vellum. Happy Holidays greeting is from Close to My Heart.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
