A Few of My Favorite Things

I wanted to enter another card for the Hero Arts Holiday Challenge, into the "A Few of My Favorite Things" category.  The elements here are truly some of my favorite things: snowflakes and snowmen, the pool color, and the technique of heat embossing is still a favorite of mine.

HA Contest A Few of My Favorite Things

I started with my last bit of this Pool  Designer paper - it is perfect for a swirling snow background!  Then I stamped and heat embossed the gorgeous Dazzling Snowflake, using HA white embossing powder.  I did the same with the sentiment from Holiday Sayings (a great set of small Christmas sentiments that is now evidently discontinued).  And my snowman is from the Snow Much Joy clear set.  He is a perfect size, can be colored with markers or pencils, or easily paper-pieced, too.  And he's easy to cut out!

Thanks for visiting today.
