World Card Making Day OWH Blog Hop

 

Thank you for joining us on the Operation Write Home Blog Hop.
Here is my card.  
I used Sketch #139


My image is Snowman Hugs from Stampers Best.  I love their variety of snowman stamps.
I created the red Faux Leather die with masking tape then covered it in Barn Red Distress Ink and embossed it.  Tutorial is here. I cut it out with the Tim Holtz Ornamental die.  The sentiment is Hero Arts.
