The Ghost of Christmas (Releases) Past

While I am waiting with breathless anticipation for Canada Post to deliver the latest Verve release, I got out some Verve from Christmas releases past.

I love this snowman from the Snow Wonderful set. He is soooo cute and easy to cut out. I stamped him on kraft cardstock, and colored him with Fresh Snow ink from Papertrey Ink, using a Q-tip. His scarf and nose are colored with Copic markers. His top hat, eyes and buttons are highlighted with Ranger Black Enamel Accents. The sentiment, snowflakes, and snowflake wreath are from Christmas in the Air. The decorative paper is from the 6x6 pad of Midnight Frost by Bo-Bunny Press. This collection has all sorts of different shades of blue snowflake prints, with a hint of burgundy.

P.S. Both these Verve sets are now on sale!!
