baby it's cold outside

hey there!
i'm on the newton's nook blog today with a super sweet card featuring stamps from the frozen friends stamp set! LOVE that set!

i used an awesome birch tree stencil and a light dusting of embossing paste over some natural colored cardstock for the backgrund. sooooo pretty! 

the sentiment was stamped onto a polka dotted vellum banner, which i was stitched onto the card. and those little love bird, snowmen? so sweet, right? they were colored with some copics and then popped up for dimension. 

i also swiped the sides of the white base of the card with some sandy colored inky to add to the blustery day feel of the card. :)

is it cold by you? it's still NOT here! lol! south carolina has it's perks, but weather, is not one of them! lol! i could really go for some cold breezes and hoodie weather! :)

have you created anything with newton's nook stamps? let me know in the comments below! i would love to visit your blog!
