Some people love snowmen, and I’m one of them! They come alive at Christmas time, and Stampin’ Up’s! Snow Wonder Bundle is perfect for creating your handcrafted Christmas cards.
Today’s card combines our Snow Wonder snowman (or snowwoman) with Feels Like Frost Designer Paper, and “her” name is Frosty.
The first thing I did was trim a piece of the 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper to 4″ X 5 1/4″. Next, I stamped Frosty in Misty Moonlight Ink, and “Happy Christmas” in Balmy Blue Ink.
Then, I used the snowman die, and label die, from the Snow Time Die Set, to cut them from the Feels Like Frost Designer Paper. I glued the designer paper to a Highland Heather card base, and thought you’d like to see the holes that were created, before completing the card. This is referred to as the “eclipse technique,” and one that’s really fun to use.
I backed Frosty and the sentiment with Highland Heather Cardstock and attached them with Dimensionals. Before attaching, I colored Frosty’s scarf and hat with Stampin’ Blends, using Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, and Old Olive. This only took a second. Next, I cut a 4″ piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon to place beneath the sentiment, which is held in place by the Dimensionals. Do you like the way it makes the snow glisten? Frosty does!
I hope the colors are inspiring for you. We’d love for you to create a card, and hang it in our gallery.
