TCP Tuesday #323 Challenge

TCP Tuesday at The Cat's Pajamas is going strong with a challenge to include 3 or more patterned papers on your project. The challenge runs for two weeks and The Cat’s Pajamas products are not required although we do love to see you use our stamps and dies.

I have tons of 6x6 pads but lately I find myself not using them that much. I still love them but often times watercolors have replaced them for me. So this was challenge was timely in that it made me open up that paper again. I started out by stamping one of the snowmen from the Let the Flakes Fly set, coloring with Copic Markers then fussy cutting out. I used a snowfall embossing folder on the card front and then attached two of the patterned paper strips. The sentiment and musical notes were stamped onto the cardstock and paper strip. The snowman was attached with foam tape as well as the final paper strip. I added a cardinal cut from red cardstock using a die from the Windows CutUps,
