Snowman Couple

Hi, it is that time of the month again (oh no not that time lol)
for the Bugaboo Crafty Challenge over at the 

Each month starting on the 15th we have a challenge that is 
sponsored by Bugaboo where you just need to color up a
Bugaboo image and enter it in the challenge. 
Don't have any Bugaboo images, no problem Bugaboo offers
                         a freebie every Friday and if you look around I am 
                                sure you will find some images you like. 

So for my card this month I chose to use this adorable little

 Aren't they just the cutest?  Well there is a reason I chose this image
beside their cuteness is, recently my son got engaged and I thought this
would make the perfect Christmas card to send them for their
1st Christmas as an engaged couple. 
I struggled so much on how I wanted to do this card, first I was going to
put them in a snowglobe and make a shaker card, but decided not too
because I didn't want them to be covered with things.
I was trying to keep it rather simple.   I randomly stamped on white paper
with a couple of snowflake stamps from the October 
Unity Kit of the Month and also some Hero Arts stamps
then I heat embossed them with white glossy
embossing powder.  
I colored the snow couple using my Copic markers and accented with some
glitter pens on the ornaments.  Her hat I added white fluff to
the band and the ball on the top, a couple details that are hard
to see in the picture.  Then I cut the image out using a
Gina Marie die that actually embosses the edges.
I then created a label in Cricut Design Space and wrote
out the Merry Christmas using my Explore and a black
Pilot Precision V5 pen.  Then fit right in your Explore
and I love the fine line they write with.
I pop dotted both the image and the label to give it some dimension.

Well thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit my
blog.  Head on over the Bugaboo Crafty Challenge and join in
the fun.
