Quick Christmas Card using Snow Much Fun

I love this set! I just love the cute little birdies, they make the set! I just wanted to share a card with you that I made for my upcoming November intermediate card class.

I ran in through the Big Shot using the embossing folder Northern Flurry. Then I stamped the images using Staz-On black ink. You want to use the alcohol based ink (staz-on) when you are going to color an image with water based inks - so the colors won't run in the black. I popped up the snowball with the bird on it and started coloring...

But I wasn't sure which I liked better...I colored the birds in Cherry Cobbler first but they looked so dark! It matched the ribbon perfectly but hmmm too dark! So I changed the birds and colored them with a blender pen in Bashful Blue. Then I used the blender pen to color in his hat and scarf with Cherry Cobbler, but that red looked to light! So...I colored his hat and scarf using the Stampin' Write Cherry Cobbler marker...and...
Perfect! It needed the ribbon just to accent that red a little more! I cut small strips and just folded them over the edge and secured them with my snail tape runner.

And my finished Christmas card! Inside I stamped the sentiment "hope your christmas is snow much fun!"
All of the products mentioned above can be purchased in my Stampin' Up! store. And remember you get 1 candy for every $35 spent. After 10 candies you can choose ANY free stamp set! I look forward to getting your order in! :)
I'm going to an all day crop tomorrow - super excited!! Hope to get some pages done, will post some if I get a chance!!
