warm winter wishes w/ hat mittens and snow Card

Created this Winter card using Simon Says Stamp Winter Warmth stamps & Warm Wishes dies. Click here to see the card that inspired me.

Used Kraft cardstock that has white flocking dots on it as layer on cream colored base. I did not add any sequins because I liked the way the Kraft cardstock with the white flocking dots looked on its own.

Stamped the hat & mittens multiple times. Cut the ones stamped onto white cardstock with dies and fussy cut out the dotted pattern paper & solid color blue with scissors for paper piecing. 

Used Martha Stewart punch for the snowflakes. MS use to put out a new snowflake punch every yr as well as other Christmas seasonal punches that Michaels sold but not seen any MS new Christmas or other seasonal punches in quite some time. Always found it difficult to punch thru glitter cardstock that is thick. Turned the punch upside down to get cardstock positioned (or should I say to use without wasting much), pressed down, turned over & pressed all the way to punch thru the vanilla glitter cardstock.
