Cold hands, warm heart!

I thought we'd take a move away from the more vintage and traditional feel of most of the cards I've done during the countdown to WCMD so far and have something with a bit more of a modern flavour!

This is Sophie - she's a sweetie, isn't she? She's available as a single stamp or as part of the Heartwarmers set in the Kim Hughes Collection. I've teamed her up with a simple sentiment and a sparkly snowflake with some torn cardstock snowdrifts to keep her bottom suitably chilled! The snowflake is a die cut coated in Glossy Accents and covered in glitter.

Stamps (Cornish Heritage Farms):

Snowy Sophie (Kim Hughes Collection)
Christmas Expressions (Mona Lisa Moments line)

Paper: Smooth white

Ink: Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite Black)


Prismacolor pencils

Snowflake Wonder dies by Spellbinder

Deko Ice glitter (Efco)
Corner Chomper

Glossy Accents (as adhesive for the glitter)
Gingham ribbon
