Speedy's Challenge #26, Die Cuts!

Hello, this weeks Speedy The Cats Friend's challenge #26 is to use a die cut! There are so many die cuts on the market now, this should be an easy one!

For today's card, I used one of the new sets from Mark's Finest Papers called Snowman Country! I stamped the snowman onto white, coloured with copics, covered him (or her) with versamark and embossed with some glittery EP. Then I cut the snowman out. You can see the glitter better in the photo below.

The card base is white, with a layer of dp from Bo Bunny. The center strip is white embossed with the snowflake EF. The ribbon is from MFP, and it looks like it was made to match this dp!

For die cuts, I used the shapeabilities Fancy Tags, and the circle nesties. The sentiment was made by inking up the snowflakes with colours to match my paper, then I stamp the 'Joy' in black. Then just like the snowman, I covered it in versamark and glittery EP. Then I punch out the sentiment. The sentiment and the snowman are popped up!

I finished it off with some pearls and a bow with a button from my stash that looks like the pearls!

I hope you can play along, just make sure to upload your creation to the Mark's Finest Papers Blog by Friday Oct. 29. You can enter as often as you like, and if you already have MFP stamps, use them and your name is entered twice! There will be a Free stamp set drawn for every 50 entries!
