So here is my card ...
the paper used is from Memorybox ...Yuletide
the stamp is Nellie Snellen...the wording misc stamp...I used my Spellbinder Oval
now you will note the red behind the spellbinder cut is my own I don't have the next size up
so I cut the shape out so the red was the background.
Then I embossed Stampendous - Shaggy White
and emboss red I colored Nellie ...hope you like...
tried to show the sparkles

I used Memory Box Frostyville to do the Border...paper used Winter Fun by
Carta Bella ...the snowman was a cut out ...
