Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #51

Hi all! Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge. Here is this week's challenge:

Here is my card:

Gotta love every chance I have to get a holiday card done this early in the year. =)

Rin and Snowman is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White card stock then colored with Copic markers. The image is cut and embossed using a Standard Circles Large die with the out of frame technique.

I had to pair this image with washi paper. =) The sentiment and tag are from Papertrey Ink.

That's all I have. Please go and check out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details for the challenge here. Hope you can join us this week! =)

Oh my goodness, this is SO sweet and cute!! And really, how DO you get part of the image cut with the die, and not the umbrella part? I've always been quite curious about that. ;)
