Hello Snowmen!

Happy Friday Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne today posting a quick, cute card using dies from the new Christmas Part 2 release.  These dies are on sale for a limited time on the website.
These little guys are so cute and are super easy to put together making this a great card for multiples.
I cut everything in white card stock and used Copic markers to color.
Because of the large greeting I opted to not use the birds.  I cut the greeting from gold foil that I had backed with a self adhesive sheet.

Next I took a panel 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches and used Distress Oxide inks and a blending tool to create a sky.  After this was finished, I trimmed it to 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches.
I used a wood-look background stamp to stamp the fence then I trimmed off the top and used paper snips to cut notches to mimic the planks of a fence.
I trimmed the fence to 5 3/8 x 1 1/2 inches tall and adhered it to the background leaving the top portion unglued so I could slip the snowmen underneath.
When everyone was added, I adhered the greeting and then mounted it all to a red A2 card base.
Very easy and fun to make!

I see people from the CottageBlog use a lot of distress inks, but have you ever used the Tim Holtz alcohol inks in the bottles? I was wondering if you could tell me what the difference is and how they can be used in card making. thanks.

I think this die was my favorite of Part 2 of the release. Your card is adorable -- love the fence you created!
