Made of Snow...


Here is my swap card for PTI round 9 swap hosted by Chris. (Link to the SCS tread if you wish to sign up can be found in the blog bar to the right.) It makes use of the brand new set from PTI called "Made of Snow", this set is so much fun to play with I can feel it quickly becoming one of my faves. The way the snowman is pieced and has wire arms is a CASE from Nichole's card that really sold me on this set. (No coloring involved)! There is going to be a suprise inside this swap card, I have used SU's slit punch to hold in some hot cocoa mix, YUMMY!!

To make the background I inked up the side of my Cuttlebug folder that has the Cuttlebug wording on it with PTI's Aqua Mist ink pad then ran the PTI shimmer paper through my sizzix using the inked up folder. That gave the snowflakes a tad of blue color but did not overwhelm the background.
