Introducing Frosty Friends- Avery Elle Fall 2017 Blog Hop!

Hello friends,

I am so excited to be participating today in a blog hop celebrating the release of Avery Elle's Fall 2017 collection of stamps and dies.  Today, I am sharing a card featuring the Frosty Friends stamp set and coordinating Frosty Friends Elle-ments dies.

Ok, so how cute are these snow people?  I adore their vintage look, and they were a delight to color in and shade with Copic markers.  I stamped, colored and die cut the snow people and adhered them to a panel of watercolor cardstock.


I used Distress Oxide ink in Cracked Pistachio to create the soft green background.   I stamped a few of the snow flakes included in the stamp set onto the inked background and added the sentiment with black ink.


Before adhering the stamped panel to a pink notecard, I die cut the bottom edge of the watercolor panel with the Dotted Borders Elle-ments die, and I adhered some clear sequins as a finishing touch.

  14. I like the delicate color scheme. It's a refreshing change from the bright reds and greens that are often a part of winter holiday cards.
