Sweet Sunday Holiday Hugs

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC217.

For this week's sketch I went with a Christmas card. #4 for Project Christmas 2014. Gosh, at this rate I'm going to need to really trim my card list. LOL!


I used Holiday Hugs Snowman from MFT. I love doing the "white snowman on kraft" technique (and that's the official name I'm calling this technique). LOL! Basically, I stamped the snowman onto Kraft using black ink, then I stamped the snowman again onto white, coloured him and cut him out. I adhered him directly over the Kraft snowman so his arms line up. Fun!

I wanted it to look like it was snowing so I embossed the circle with my swiss dots embossing folder. Then I inked the raised dots with Sweet Tooth pigment ink. It doesn't really show up in the photo but it looks great in real life!

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
