Eskimo Kisses

This is my post on the 
Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today.

Hi, Diane with you today with a fun 'Christmas in August'
card to share with you using
Eskimo Kisses Stamp set. 
Eskimo Kisses
I started out by using a Cheery Lynn Designs wreath die
called Joy To The World Wreath.
I cut the die 2 times

Eskimo Kisses
Brushable Glue was applied to each wreath,
then heavily coated with Pine Grove Glitter Tinsel.
The two wreaths were then stacked, one on the other.
It doesn't matter if some of the white shows, it just adds
to the beauty of the wreath.

When the wreath was adhered to the card panel, I slightly bent 
some of the branches up,
then added a bow to the top.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark
then embossed with Christmas Fire embossing powder.
The sentiment was then punched out with a heart punch.
Eskimo Kisses
The adorable snowman and child were stamped with
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored with various Copics,
then fussy cut out.
I added Sparkle N Sprinkle Twinkling Clouds to the
ear muffs, cuffs and snowman hat brim.
Gypsy Red Velvet glitter was added to the snowman's hat pompom.
To finish I added Sparkling Snow glitter
to the snowflake embossed back panel.

Wow, that wreath totally looks like it's made of tinsel. What cool embossing powder! The stamp is darling, too, and I love how you set the boy and snowman there in front of the wreath. So cute!
