Let it snow glitter!

When I purchased my Tim Holtz paper distresser, I noticed that the packaging sorta looked like a snowman...miracle of miracles, it fit perfectly over my build-a-snowman stamp set! I colored the stamp with Copics, filled the plastic with glitter, and glued it atop the stamped piece. The "Let It Snow!" sentiment is from the same stamp set, but I used shrink plastic to make the little charm. I used my Crop-O-Dile to punch a hole in the snowflake brads so that I could add a rhinestone brad in the middles. The background paper is by Tim Holtz, so I distressed the pieces with said paper distresser and Antique Linen distress ink. I also inked the striped ribbon for a slightly more "vintage" look.
