My Frosty Is Ready for Winter

Welcome!  With all these cold temperatures I am thinking of snow and snowmen.  I created my "Frosty" using a Heartfelt Creations stamp from Snowmen Melt Your Heart set.  Since this stamp is only the head I added 2 white cardstock circles to build him coloring with a bit of Copic B0000 and added Black"Coal" (black gems) for his Eyes and Buttons. I paper pieced his Scarf and Hat Band and fussy cut his arms from Black CS Scraps. I attached him to a background layered with several Pattern Papers from Fancy Pants pad Timbergrove including some of the printed words from one of the sheets.  The Snowflake paper was embossed with Darice EF Snowflakes. I finished with some die cut Snowflakes from a Glitter paper scrap . Looking at this card,  I can just hear .......  thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, look at frosty go!

The image is treated beautifully and your project is weel executed. i really like your paper choices and I think the embossing takes the design to another level of visual interest!
