The Chill Of Winter

Today is cold and dreary where I live so it is the perfect day to escape into my craft room and have some me time. 

I had coloured this super cute digital stamp from Miss Daisy Stamps a little while ago and decided today was the day to get it made into a card. 

I started by printing off my digital stamp and colouring it with alcohol markers. I cut it out using dies from Spellbinders and inked the edges with Antique Lined Distress ink. Some cream cardstock was run through a snowflake embossing folder and all of this was added to a patterned paper background from Echo Park and Simple Stories. The sentiment - also from Miss Daisy Stamps - was printed on cream cardstock and mounted on green to match. The image itself is popped up using some 3D Foam Pop Dots.

My absolute favourite embellishment - enamel dots - finish off my card.
