A Cold Winter Scene

Happy Friday and thank you for stopping by! I hope those of you in the US had a nice Thanksgiving yesterday and lots of yummy food!

I have a wintery card to share today using stamps from Just for Fun Rubber Stamps.


I started out by stamping the trees in the background and stamping them again without re-inking the stamp. Next I stamped the fence. For the snow banks I used a torn paper mask and an ink applicator. The snowman was stamped on separate card stock, colored and cut out and adhered to the card. Embellished with some glitter, a small clear button and some twine.

Products used:
 decorative iron fence, snowflake 
all stamps above by JFF
scallop border punch, scallop circle nestabilities die
clear button, twine, stickles glitter,
copics, SU ink, memento ink

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Stay warm!!

I really like how you placed the scallop frame over your stamping and the snowbanks. It's a great effect! :-)
