Papertrey Ink November 2014 Blog Hop

It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. 
This month's theme is SNOW.
It's currently snowing outside, so this is a very timely challenge!! 
I made a Holiday card using PTI stamps, dies and card stock.

* Two Stitched Circles were cut: Pure Poppy and Stamper's Select White. 
* A snowflake (Peace Be Still) was stamped onto the red circle with Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder.  
* A small clear adhesive gem accents the center of the snowflake.

* Contrasting embroidery floss, using a blanket stitch, highlights the edges of the circles. This was the most time consuming part of the process.
* A card base of  Stamper's Select White was impressed with the Linen/Canvas Impression Plate and then two corners were rounded with a  corner rounder punch. The sentiment (Love Lives Here : Holiday) was stamped with Pure Poppy Ink.
