For my snowman, I stamped him twice on white cardstock and colored his hat, scarf, nose and shaded him a little using markers and a water brush. I cut out the base image using a die and my Out of the Box Nestie Technique . I cut out the hat and scarf only of the second image and popped them up on top of the base using foam tape. I sponged a little green ink around the edge of the die cut.
I did the sentiment tag the same way. I used red and green ink on the Open Plaid bg and stamped it on the diagonal to make my candy striped paper ribbon. On the white background panel, I stamped the Holly Card Edger with dk green ink as a frame and used markers to add some color. I cut it out using the scallop edge as the guide. It's attached to red then to a white card.
