Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I were cleaning up after the frosty incident that transpired whilst we were creating spells when I noticed a strange sight. On the blackboard near the workbench there was a sketch of a snowman that had not been there before. I asked my sister if she had drawn the doodle and she said she hadn’t. I went to the blackboard and was about the erase the mysterious drawing when the snowperson suddenly moved and started shaking his head, a look of horror upon his frosty face.
I started this card by cutting out the black shape using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I then stamped the Kraftin’ Kimmie “Sending Winter Hugs” image and heat embossed it using white embossing powder, earning myself +50 embossing XP points. I tried using a dryer sheet to “de-static” the paper, but quite a bit of the powder still stuck to the black cardstock and is visible depending on the angle you look at the card. I’m not sure if there is a better way to do this, as I’m quite new to heat embossing. Moving along...the sentiment I stamped using the Unity “Happy Holiday Wishes” itty bitty. I used the Archival Jet Black ink, but it looks rather navy after I stamped it on the paper which was rather disappointing. Siiiiigh…. Some twine and little black snowflakes finished off this card.
The inside I stamped using the Hero Arts “Christmas Reindeer” set.
The envelope was also stamped using snowflakes from the Christmas Reindeer set.
This snowman will chill in the following challenges before he is erased:

It seems as though this chalk drawing somehow had been given life. Perhaps it occurred during the spell creation accident. At any rate, I couldn’t just erase him away...instead I set about drawing him some nice trees and a pretty snowlady to be friends with.
