Being Cool at Card Cupids

Happy December! It's time for another great challenge at Card Cupids, and we have some great news too... Card Cupids has expanded into the Sunshine Mail Foundation!

Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps, and they provided our DT with these three adorable images that I just had to pile all together:

I cut the circles on my Bigshot with a Spellbinders die, and for the blank "snowballs" I ran them through my sticker machine and then covered them with white flocking. I colored the images with Copics & added white flocking with a ZIG glue pen. The flagpole is made with a plastic toothpick I took home from sandwiches (O how my husband rolled his eyes!), which I covered with baker's twine. I stamped "Warm Wishes" onto blue paper and hand-cut the flag. The background paper is from my stash.
