Sparkly Snowman



There is a challenge on SCS (in the MFT forum) to make a card using the paper piecing technique with your MFT stamps. Since I just received my first MFT stamps last week, I just had to give it a whirl. I paper pieced so many parts on this card, I think I went a little overboard! :o)) I paper pieced: the coat, dress (underneath the coat), scarf, mitten, legs (which I colored with my Blush Blossom marker) boots and the blue snowflake background. I used the desginer paper Holiday Thyme (SU) that retired a couple of years ago. The blue panel I put through my Cuttlebug Snowflake folder and sponged over it with Bashful Blue ink.
I used Dazzling Diamonds Glitter for the snowman and snow. It is so sparkly!
Have a great day!
