Sweet Stamps- Cold & Snowy.......

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Cold and Snowy.
 I decided to made a flip card:
 The snowman is painted using Creative Inspirations paint : )

  It is so hard to capture glimmer in the pictures.......
   I  had fun using glittery Embossing Powders- the snowman is embossed using Black Sparkly EP and the snowflakes in Ivory Sparkle EP.  I used clear EP on the snowman panel background (emboss resist) -the cardstock was white to begin with. The snowflake in the upper left corner and both sentiments are stamped in the clear embossing ink, then in the Nassau blue and then clear embossed. 
 The left side panel is embossed using Coordinations cardstock, then sanded and the raised embossed areas  painted with Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust paint. The right side is Bo Bunny Designer Paper. The flip side of the snowman panel is also the same DP with more snowflakes and the Merry Christmas sentiment. 

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

Adorable card, Shelly! Great use of the technique. Saw your comment at DTD that you hadn't heard they were closing. I'm so sad about that. Masculine cards just won't be the same. :-(
