You melt my heart !

Today I want to share a Christmas card project 
where I explore using a new medium to me - 
that is using chalks to color die cuts cut out of white cardstock.  

For my snowman diecut here , I've used Pebbles' Inc light blue chalk to add
a little subtle shading to the body of the snowman, black chalk
for the top hat and blue for the snowman's scarf . 
I also used 2 shades of green chalk on the pinetree
For more definition on my snowman's scarf, 
heart, hands and red band on the top hat, 
I've used American Craft's Glitter Gel pens . 

I so love this discovery of using this 
new combo of using chalks with gel pens on my diecuts. 

The patterned paper used here is from the Winter Wonderland line

Happy Crafting !

Adorable!! What fun paper. Love the glittered accents and love that sweet snowman and tree. The chalks add a really nice soft detail. Makes them look like they're cut from canvas, not cardstock.
