My reveal card uses the new Magic Of The Season set.  I live in the south so I don’t see as much snow as I did when growing up in Minnesota.  It was always so exciting to see the snow coming down and we always had the hopeful suspense waiting to see if school would be closed so we could bundle up and go build a snowman.  That was what came to mind when I saw this sweet set and decided to try to show this on my card.



I started with a decorative piece of cardstock and ran it through a snowflake embossing folder.  I sponged the raised snowflake with Versamagic White Cloud ink and heat embossed with Winter White embossing powder.  I tore a piece of white cardstock and covered with Versamark Ink and Winter White embossing powder, heat set, and added to the bottom.  This was all popped up on a piece of red cardstock with Firecracker Red embossing powder added to the edges, using the Distressed Embossing Powder Technique, and a white card base.



The magical hat was heat embossed with Midnight Madness embossing powder, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut.  Firecracker Red embossing powder was added to the little berries, Sparkle embossing powder to the jingle bell, and Winter White embossing powder underneath and on top of the hat and bell.  I purposely did not use my Embossing Buddy so small amounts of the Winter White would adhere to various areas of the hat and I heat set from underneath so they would stay in place.  I popped this up on top of the “snowdrift”.



The rest of the snowman was created with three sizes of circles, die cut with Spellbinder dies.  After embossing the sentiment on the medium sized circle, I covered all three with Versamark Ink and Sparkle embossing powder, heat set, and popped them up on the card front.  For embellishments I added some plaid ribbon to look like a scarf, and added Mon Ami Gabbi Rhinestone Strips at the top and bottom of the card front.

Love the feel of winter, even if it is over 90 degrees outside.  You can find detailed instructions for this card in the SNS gallery here.



We hope you enjoy the New Reveals as much as we do!
Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize this month?
