This card is perfect for a cold winter night in December. Usually, it means the holidays are approaching. This is a perfect card to bring a snowy night to life. I love the colors that represent the cold and the Winter. You can add some glitter for a more dominant effect.

Instructions: Using 1 ½” Circle Punch, cut circle from Whisper White Hold circle onto Whisper White cardstock where you want your moon and lightly sponge around outside of circle getting gradually getting darker as you move out away from circle. You may hold circle in place by hand or by using Washi Tape. Other tape may cause it to tear when removed. After outline of moon with light ink is completed, start sponging with Night of Navy ink, working out to all the edges, blending as best as you can. You may need to “sponge off” some to prevent sky getting too dark. When complete, you can remove the circle. Use stamp with dots and with Versamark ink, stamp randomly on the card to make it look like snow. Cover the dots using the Shimmer White Embossing Powder. With Heat Tool, emboss the snowflakes taking care to not burn your paper. Cut out the tag and branch using the dies from Beautiful Boughs. Use the Snowfall Puff Paint to randomly place on branches then heat emboss. Stamp the sentiment onto the tag using Versamark and White Embossing Powder (words are more clear and crisp with plain white vs shimmery white embossing powder). Heat to emboss the words. Adhere Designer Series Paper to card base. Adhere branch to sponged Whisper White card front then wrap ribbon around it at the bottom, tie it, then add sentiment piece on top of it. Adhere branch/moon piece to Designer Series Paper. Lightly spritz Champagne Glimmer Paint mixture over front of card (optional but very pretty) Add Whisper White on inside of card so it can be written onto. Place a rhinestone on each side of the tag sentiment where the holes are. Remember, you do not have to invent the wheel to be creative, just copy this project! Did you make it with your own hands? Then you have created!

Stamp the snowflakes from Snowman Season over the Come Sail Away Balmy Blue stripe in stamped off Night of Navy and stamped off Balmy Blue.
Adhere the designer paper to the Flirty Flamingo layer.
Tie about 8 inches of the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around these layers and tie in a knot a little below the halfway mark from top to bottom and to the left of the card front.
Adhere these layers to the card front.
Cut the navy stripe paper with the Layering Ovals dies. Add this paper to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Punch the snowman using the Snowman Builder Punch from Whisper White. Add features using the Let It Snow Embellishments Kit. For the face, start with the carrot nose and then add the eyes and mouth. Add the buttons down the front. Use the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to fill in around the features and cover most of the snowman. Heat with the Heat Tool to make the paint puff. Add the snowman to the navy stripe with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Complete with the arms from the kit. Add the hat and scarf in Flirty Flamingo using a little glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Whisper White measuring 5/8 x 3 ½. Stamp in Flirty Flamingo ink. Notch the ends using the Triple Banner Punch. Add using Stampin’ Dimensionals and place this just under the snowman so he has a little snow under him. We don’t want him just floating!
Add the mittens with a dot of glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
