Snowman starburst card

Hi all! I love trying new techniques and there is just so many wonderful resources out there to find great techniques to try out! I've seen the starburst technique on so many papercrafting sites from cardmaking to scrapbooking so I knew I just had to try it out for myself! I googled the technique and found several good tutorials.This week over at iSpy Sketches they have a starburst sketch challenge ;

Here's my first starburst card:

I used an oldie but still a goodie stamp set from CTMH called Snow Friends .... isn't this little guy and his friend just so stinkin' cute!!! The papers used for the starburst is from Crate Paper " Snow Day"... this collection has a ton of cheerful and bright papers !!  Can you see the sentiemnt on the front? It's much easier to see person!! It's a greeting from the October Stamp-of-the Month from CTMH called Very Merry Christmas.
 Here's a close up of my snowman popped up.....
I stamped him first on a CTMH cardstock in Juniper ( used the same color ink) and then I stamped him again on white and fussy cut him out after I colored him with my Copics. To make the snowflakes pop out a little , I added a wee bit of Stickles to them and I did the same to his buttons ( just used brown instead of clear).
Of course, we are getting closer to Christmas every day , so I really needed to finish this card on the inside as well.....
Isn't that the cutest sentiment!!! It's also from the Snow Friends set . I stamped the base in Juniper and Early Espresso ( SU) and then matted more Crate Paper, just cause I love it so much!!!
This was such a fun card to create... I think I may be addicted to this style!!!
Thanks for stopping by today.... have a great rest of your day!!
