All Decked Out

I Finally got to play with my November Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart "All Decked Out." This is such a cute set, its a build your own snowman set-so much fun. I don't know about you but when i think of snow i think of hot cocoa, so i decided to use one of Lauren Meader's -Timeless Templates music Makeover and fill it with a couple of cocoa packets. I put together my template and covered it with creative basics evensong collection dp. i added a scalloped edge and ribbon to the front flap. I stamped my paper pieced my snowmans scarf and hat with the same dp and paper pieced his gloves with cranberry cardstock. I built my snowman, sponged the sides of my image with crystal blue ink and stamped some snowflakes. i pierced some of the snow flourishes and added round sparkles randomly throughout the snow flourishes and matted my image onto cranberry cardstock , pierced the edges and added my sentiment. I adhered it to the front flap being sure to only stick the top and using velcro on the bottom to keep it shut. so there you have it a cute, simple little gift. I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for looking:)
