Dancing Snowman Trio - Winter Time Wishes

Hello bloggers, sorry but another Christmas related card today and I'm afraid it will probably be a regular sign as its only 7 months away to the big day.

This card began as a 6x6 white hammered card blank.  I cut a mat from blue glitter card and made it quite a bit smaller than the card blank.  Next I cut another mat from silver mirror board that was slightly smaller than the glitter card mat.  Using some white card stock and the 'snowmen' stamp set from Stamping With Dimension I stamped the snowflake stamp using 'clear' Perfect Medium ink pad.  Then I added silver embossing powder over the top and heat embossed it with a heat gun.  Next using 'tumbled glass' distress ink I ink up the background of the snowflakes so that the whole area was covered.  The ink resisted the snowflakes as they were heat embossed.  From some patterned vellum I cut out the 'Winter Time Wishes' sentiment and adhered it to the bottom of the snowflake background.  Using some more white card stock I stamped the trio of dancing snowmen using 'tumbled glass' distress ink.  I then water coloured the hats and carrots with distress inks.  With some turquoise ribbon I tied a bow and attached it to the left side of the topper.  The edges of the topper were also inked up with 'tumbled glass' distress ink.  The topper was then adhered to the snowflake background.  Next with some pale blue bakers twine I wrapped this around the bottom of the topper and tied it with a snowflake button attached.  Finally all the layers were adhered to the card blank.
