Today’s card features the snowman from the Snow Wonder Bundle. As far as gender, this is definitely a girl, with her pink wreath and rhinestones. But, I think of “snowman” as I do “mankind,” to include both sexes. So, her name is Sally, and I hope this is politically correct.
Sally, from the Snow Wonder Stamp Set, said I should stamp her with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and use her Snow Time Die for cutting. She mentioned she was the easiest, and best focal point, in the entire August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. I can’t argue with the ease, and she is really cute.
After thinking about a sentiment, she decided on “Joy to the world,” because she brings joy to everyone. “Joy” was cut with a “Joy Die” from Basic Black Cardstock that was adhered to a Foam Adhesive Sheet. This is a great way to add dimension to those thin letters, and Sally was happy she could hold “joy” so easily. The coordinating stamp set, Peace & Joy, had the words, “to the world,” which I stamped in Memento Black Ink, and hand cut with scissors.
The wreath HAD to be pink, and I used a Wreath Builder Die to cut it from one of the amazing pieces of In Good Taste Designer Paper. Sally said she wanted it decorated with pretty rhinestones, and it also needed a Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon Bow. She was very specific about that!
Sally said she needed snow, because she didn’t want to melt, and the Winter Snow Embossing Folder was perfect for making snow on Whisper White Cardsock, 4″ X 5 1/4″. I glued this to a Thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, so Sally will be safe, at least until Christmas.
Sally confided in me that she did get some ideas from Charlet’s card at Global Design Project. I reassured her that she was supposed to do that, as long as as she gave Charlet credit. Here is Charlet’s pretty card, which you can click on to get a better view. You can also see how other designers used Charlet’s idea.
