I based this card off OWH Sketch #37. If you try the sketch yourself, please note that the vertical strip is marked 2.5" wide but I found that it looked better much narrower (as it's pictured in the sketch), so I changed it to 1.25" wide.
This was one of those cards where I got 80% finished and couldn't figure out what to do to finish the card. I picked the papers, cut the background and strips, stamped the sentiment, and could not decide on an image. I finally found this snowman from Unity that I'd never inked up. It was part of a grab bag that I got in the spring so I don't know what it's called.
Papers: K&Co (floral), Fiskars (pink vines), Making Memories (blue), stash (ivory)
Stamps: Unity (snowman- unknown name), Heidi Swapp (thank you)
