I started with a base of Marina Mist cardstock then I layered a Night Of Navy piece of cardstock. The Night of Navy piece was embossed using the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder then Whisper White Craft Ink was sponged on top. The "Snow" at the bottom of the card is just Whisper White cardstock with one torn edge and coated in Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.
The Snow man is 3 circles, 1 3/8", 1 1/4" and 1" in Whisper White then spritzed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. I used one of the small circles on the Owl Builder Punch to make his buttons and the face was drawn on with Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie Markers. Basic Rhinestone Jewels embellish the snowman.
The small Silver Snowflake in the corner was made using the Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die and the Silver Glimmer Paper. I LOVE the glimmer paper! It really adds sparkle to the project! I used another Basic Rhinestone Jewel to adorn the snowflake and colored with a Marina Mist Marker.

One of our family traditions for the day and weekend after Thanksgiving is for my mother-in-law, daughter and I to make a Ginger Bread House. In the past we have made a Gingerbread Village, a castle, and a Victorian House. This year we decided to make Strawberry Shortcake's Village because my daughter LOVES that show. Here's some pictures of our little creation:
