Welcome to Global Design Project’s weekly challenge! For today’s sketch design, I chose to feature a returning favorite, the Snow Wonder Stamp Set with coordinating, Snow Time Dies. Who doesn’t love an adorable snowman?
I began the scene with a favorite pattern of Harvest Meadow Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″. After gluing this to a Crumb Cake card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, I cut a 3″ X 3″ square from the same designer paper. This was backed with Thick Basic White Cardstock, 1/8″ larger, for a 1/16″ border, and attached to the card front with Dimensionals. Then, I used a Seasonal Swirls Die to cut a wreath from Champagne Foil, and glued it to the square, leaving the right side free.
Now for the focal point! I stamped the Snow Wonder snowman in Soft Suede Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and used its Snow Time Die for cutting.
Next, I stamped the sentiment, “Happy Christmas,” in Balmy Blue Ink, and used its die for cutting. The snowman wanted to hold the sign, so I glued it to his belly before attaching him with Dimensionals.
For a bit of blue sparkle, I added a few Artistry Blooms Sequins. Don’t you love self-adhesive sequins?
I also decorated the envelope flap by embossing it with a Meadow Moments Embossing Folder, which you can see in the first photo.
Here is the fun sketch for you to use for inspiration. I’d love to see your creation in our gallery.
