The Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 5 and Prickley Pear Mondays

Day 5 - Prickley Pear Monday

Hi there dear friends!! It's hard to believe we are already on day five of the Twelve Days of Christmas celebration!! Today is also Prickley Pear Monday and I chose to use Prickley Pear Rubber Stamp's Snowman Postage as the inspiration for today's post:
I started with an old piece of Basic Grey Eskimo Kissed paper from my stash and I die cut the edge of the paper with Papertrey Ink's Edger Collection #3.  I decided the base of my card should be dry embossed with Sizzix snowflake embossing folder to add texture and to enhance the snowy theme.
I punched a 1 3/4" hold into the patterned paper and then decided to make a glittered frame out of Rustic Cream Cardstock.  I die cut a scalloped circle using a Spellbinders Die and then punched the middle out of the circle using the same 1 3/4" punch and then added some glitter to represent snow.
I stamped the Snowman Postage in Momento's Tuxedo Black Ink and then fussy cut the snowman image out.  I lightly colored him with Copic Markers and added glitter to make him shine.  I used Melissa Frances  Deck the Halls 6x6 pad to create the background behind the snowman.  I just love the Christmas music background!
I added the sentiment from Prickley Pear Stamps Vintage Ornament and added glittered snowflakes, ribbon and jingle bells to embellish.
You can see all the layers from this viewpoint.  Such a fun little card to make!!
