For a Special Couple

I made this card for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge 'Have a Heart'.  I'm also entering the Bugaboo Weekly Challenge 'BINGO' (I've chosen Bugaboo Image, Embossing & Sparkle), the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 'Christmas', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Use Some Green' and the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes'.

7" x 7" white matt card blank
Bugaboo 'Snow Couple' digi stamp
Lawn Fawn 'Outside in Stitched Square Stackables' die
Creative Expressions 'Sparkle Squares' embossing folder
Kars tan embossing mat
White and dark green matt card
Diamond Stickles
Glossy Accents
Wink of Stella
Computer generated sentiment 'Curlz MT' font

I embossed white card with the Sparkle Squares embossing folder and trimmed it to a square.  This was layered onto green card and attached to the card front.  I resized the digi stamp and added the sentiment before printing it onto white card.  I used the largest die to die cut and emboss the square before colouring it with Promarkers.  This square was layered onto green card and attached to the centre.  I highlighted the scarves and hats with a Wink of Stella and added Diamond Stickles for the snow.  To finish I added Glossy Accents to the heart.
