Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge: Snow Much Fun

Good morning!  I'm so excited to share my card for this weeks Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge and I decided to do something completely different and make it a Christmas card.  Everyone knows that I love Christmas and plan in advance but this is even early for my, but when Stampin' Up! released the retired stamp set list last week there were lots of Christmas stamp sets included which means we'll be saying goodbye to them forever in a month.  The Snow Much Fun stamp set was one I liked ever since it was first released but I didn't buy it until a few months ago when it was on sale so I feel like I really need to use it some more, actually I think this is one of the sets I'll be keeping in my personal collection since these guys are so cute.
 
This is a pretty easy card, it starts with a Cherry Cobbler cardbase and then I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock that was embossed iwth the Snowflake embossing folder (retiring) as well as different patterns from the Be of Good Cheer DSP pack.  Gumball Green stitched satin ribbon was added to add some dimension and detail.  I stamped the snowman in Early Espresso ink and then cut him out with the Big Shot and Ovals Collection framelits before coloring it in with Stampin' Write markers and sponged around the edge with Crumb Cake ink.  The greeting is from the same stamp set and was punched out with the Modern Label punch and sponged with Gumball Green ink.
 
This is a great card and you could definitely make this in multiples.  Just a reminder to make sure that if you like this stamp set, or any of the other retiring products that you make sure to get them before you run out of time.
 
Have a great day!
