The Ribbon Reel #44!

Hello friends and welcome to The Ribbon Reel #44 -  'WINTER WONDERLAND'!  For this week's challenge, we are to create a card/project inspired by the colors in the photo, include a snowman or snowflake and ribbon/twine/trim. 

I began my design with a base of crisp white card stock onto which I layered a piece of kraft card stock.  Next I added a pretty piece of snowflake patterned paper and machine sewed this onto the base of the card.  For my Snowman, I stamped him with black ink and colored his hot chocolate pitcher and hat with kraft, red and black markers.  I added a sweet little 3-D embellishment to the hat that I created using two White Leaf Stick Pins and a pretty Small Red Gingham Button.  For the  Snowlady, I stamped her with black ink and colored her hat and scarf with markers.  I added a pretty pink 'skirt' using some Pale Pink Scallop Lace Trim and then gave her hat a pom-pom top with a Ivory Resin Dahlia Flower.

To pick up the snowflake theme from the inspiration photo, I added some delicious May Art White Satin Snowflake Trim to the bottom of my card - swoon!!!

And there you have it ... my snowman/flake inspired little card -- full of whimsey and fun!  The stamp sets are Paper Sweeties: Snow Friends, Friendship Warms the Heart, Stand Add-on 4 and Hand Stamped by:!
