Robin's Creative Cottage Challenge #3 - Ribbons & Bows

Sorry I haven't made many posts lately. I've been busy decking the halls of my home! I have several paper projects in progress and managed to complete one to share with all of you.

Today is Robin's Creative Cottage Challenge #3. The challenge this week is to create a project that uses ribbons & bows. I love using these as embellishments because they can add a lot to your project.

I was in Winter mode so I thought I'd create a project using the Snowman's Prayer set.

Here's my card! I used LOTS of glitter and embossing powder to jazz it up. This particular snowman went very well with the "You're So Cool!" saying.

Here are the details as to how I made the card:

Saying is from Snowman's Prayer Rubber Stamp Set (If you are interested in picking up this set, it's a great time since they are on sale NOW)
Red card stock is 9" x 6.25" and folded in half
Bo Bunny Tis The Season Paper was cut at 4.25"x6" and 3.25"x4" for the mats
Snowman is from Smiley Cards cut at 3.5"
Red Scallop is from Elegant Edges Flower 3 cut at 4"
Round Top Tag is from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More (pg 90) cut at 1.75"
Other supplies used: Maraschino Twine, buttons, red ribbon, Stampin UP Real Red ink

To get the shiny embossed look behind the snowman, I inked the Cuttlebug Snowflake folder with Versamark. I then embossed the paper. After wards, I sprinkled embossing powder and heated it. I then cut a circle out of this paper and mounted it to the red scallop. It gives it a shimmery effect!

Be sure and visit Robin's blog to purchase your stamps and post your project! I enjoy seeing what everyone creates!!!

For the fun of it, I'm also going to enter this card in Cardz TV Challenge #96 - Say It With S
