Snowbuddy - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #92

Along with this week's sketch challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday here there is a piggyback challenge i.e. add red on my project somewhere.

 

I decided I needed another snowman card as all my others have been sold.  So I started by stamping the image from the stamp set "Snow Much Fun".  I just love these little characters!  The image was colored with SU markers, making sure there was red on the clothing. A snowman has to have some glitter, so some dazzling diamonds was applied to the hat and snowball, and some silver glass glitter at its feet.  Then I took some dazzling details and lightly applied it around the body.  Did I overdo the glitter?  On a Christmas card I don't think that's possible.
The rest of the focal image consists of Real Red cardstock in the form on an embossed banner and an antique brad inserted through one end, some red and white designer paper, and some silver glitter paper punched with the scallop edge punch.The top edge was rounded using a 1" circle punch, and all the edges sponged with Real Red ink.
Wait!  I'm not done with the glitter yet!  The base of the card is Gumball Green, layered with Whisper White cardstock double embossed with the starburst folder and ---yes--iridescent ice embossing powder.
