Today's creation uses both a stamped image & designer paper from the new Graphic45 'Christmas Emporium" set.  The designer paper is two-sided and I have used both sides of this one 8x8 sheet.  My image was colored with Prismacolor markers and I've used light blue chalk for the background.  By adding little dabs of Quickie Glue and Deco Art Glamour Dust ... I've given the illusion of snow in the background.  Liquid Applique was added to the girls coat, hat, boot tops & muff for dimension.  The big sparkly snowflake came from Michael's (a long time ago) ... sorry don't know who the maker is.

Two beautiful cards, Darlene! Oh but that first one, so vintage, has stolen my heart. Your Liquid Applique is perfect... I find that stuff SO hard to work with. I always get way too much on the card and then when it puffs up it just takes over everything! lol
