Thoughts Of You Warm My Heart. Impression Obsession - Snowflake stamp Stampotique - Global Warming

The one thing I don’t miss in my life is snow. The closest I get to snow is stamping a snowman and some glittery snowflakes on a card. I think of my friends up north often and love to send them warm thoughts from South Carolina this time of the year when I know they’re pulling out their boots, scarves and winter coats. I hope they have fun building snowmen in the front yard!

Time: 1 hour

Stamp larger snowflakes on background againwith VersaMark, but apply clear embossing powder and melt with heat tool. Apply a small drop of On Point Glue to the centers of snowflakes and sprinkle a tiny bit of Glass Glitter to each spot.

Step 5

Ink edges with Delicata Silvery Shimmer. Adhere the decorated panel to black cardstock, patterned paper and attach to blank card. Tear a piece of scrap red paper and adhere to card. Tear a scrap piece of foil on top of the red paper. Stamp the phrase “Thoughts Of You Warm My Heart” on white cardstock scrap, ink edges, apply pop dots to the phrase and glue to the top of the foil piece.
