This is such a cute stamp called Snowman Couple from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I can think of several different ways to use this sweet couple including Christmas, a winter anniversary, or as a thank you card just to name a few.
I started out by stamping the image using the Stamp Platform and Memento Ink (Tuxedo Black). Then Koh-I-Noor colored pencils were used to color the image. After fussy cutting out the image, Orchid glitter was added to her hat band, Fire Engine Red glitter was added to the heart, Waterscape glitter outlines the snowmen bodies, and Bubblegum glitter gives the ornaments added sparkle. Shaved Ice was added to the snow.
The background was die cut using a Tonic Studios die from their specialty paper (Craft Perfect Embossed Paper - English Lace). The English Lace reminded me of snow flakes. In order to give this specialty paper added bling, I lightly sprayed it with a spray adhesive and covered it with more Waterscape glitter.
The sentiment was stamped with Memento Ink (Grape Jelly) and quickly heat embossed with Clear Detail embossing powder. Then it was die cut using a Simon Says Stamp die (Stitched Circles). The embellishment behind the sentiment is an Obsession Impression die (Tied Line), which was heat embossed with Fabulous Grape embossing powder. The little snowflake (Sizzix) was die cut from a piece of Super Adhesive Sheets and covered with Waterscape glitter. I used a Copic marker to outline the edges of the snowflake to give it a slight purple cast. Tonic Studios mirrored cardstock (Purple Mist) was used for the card base.
