I love the Snow More Fun stamp set from the new catalog and HAD to use it for my convention swaps.  Another new catty favorite of mine is the Perfect Pennants die, so I wanted to work that one in as well.  Yesterday, I shared with you the versions of my Snow Buddies convention swaps that did NOT make the cut with my family.  Although one of my color selections yesterday had the new In Color, Lucky Limeade, (and was my personal favorite) I ended up going with the more muted shades since the brood liked them better.  They are more unusual colors for Christmas and it's fun to show that you don't always have to go super "Christmasy".  And this card could easily be used all winter long.

Today's versions use a different image from the stamp set that the family preferred.  They are basically the same card, but with two different techniques to finish it off.  The first one pictured is the version that my family voted as the winner and the one I ended up using for my convention swaps.  With this one I just used the 2-Way Glue Pen to add dots of snow and highlights on the snowman face and then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

The second version uses the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique.  However, everyone like the "snow" better.  I thought you might like to see another option though.  Enjoy!
