Simple by Sweet Holiday

I was going for quick, simple but sparkling with sweet holiday wishes. Did I achieve it? This card took no time at all to make! I paper pierced the outside of some Whisper White card stock and stamped the tiny snowman and star from the new CC Designs set called Sugarplum Snowy Scenery. The words are from one of Amy Rysavy's new sentiment sets. Honestly, both of her sets are amazing and are sets that will be in my collection forever!!!
I outlined the snowman with a Going Grey Stampin' Write Marker, I did the same with the snowy ground I created and did his carrot nose with some Pumpkin Pie ink and an Aquapainter. The star was stamped with Black Staz On and I went over it with some Summer Sun chalk and finished off with some glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
The oval that the sentiment was done in was totally CASED from this card by my friend Vicki. Her work is AMAZING and this card is more beautiful in person than you see here! I wish I could give you a blog link for her so you could follow her work, but alas, she doesn't have a blog! So, are your Christmas cards done yet?
