I love creating cards with snowmen. I have had a lot of fun using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Snowman die set. For this card, I used only part of the snowman's body.
Start with a 12x6 inch piece of Whisper Blue Soft Finish Cardstock scored across the center to create a 6 inch card. Cut a piece of white card stock 5 3/4 inches square and attach to the front of the card. Cut a piece of the ModaScrap Let It Snow design cardstock slightly smaller and attach for the background.
Use the third largest die in the Dotted Scallop Rectangle die set and die cut one white rectangle. Use the fourth largest die in the Stitched Rectangle die set and die cut one rectangle. Before removing from the die, use Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink to sponge on blue ink. This will leave a white border around the rectangle die cut. Use a white opaque marker to draw on white snowflakes to coordinate with the design cardstock. Attach the rectangles together using a piece of dimensional tape between layers. Attach to the lower right corner on the card.
Use the Stylish Snowman die set and die cut the head and middle section of the snowman. Die cut the hat, face and scarf. If you would like a glittery snowman, die cut the pieces using Clear Double Sided Adhesive on top. Use Basic Black Silk Microfine Glitter for the hat, Cool Diamond for the body, Orange for the nose, and Spring Peridot Silk Microfine Glitter for the scarf. I cut a narrow piece of cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive to create a hat band and added True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. To create the polka dots on the scarf, I used a white opague pen.
Assemble the snowman and cut off a portion of the larger body to fit across the bottom of the frame created. Attach the snowman with dimensional tape.
Use the Els van de Burgt Candle die set and die cut a bunch of the pine boughs using green card stock. Arrange the pine boughs on the lower left and upper right corners of the framed snowman. Add berries using Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Use the Holiday Garland die set and die cut one snowflake garland. Use a piece of white card stock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on top when you die cut it. Sprinkle on Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and rub in with your fingers for a sparkly finish.
Use Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia die set to create the flower. Add green and yellow Prills to the center. Shape the flower and leaves using Susan's Flower Tool Kit. For instructions on how to shape and create this poinsettia, you can view Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia Video at this LINK.
Use the Garden Notes Whitepine Bough & Pinecone die set to die cut several pine boughs, using green cardstock.
Attach the Whitepine Boughs on the upper left corner of the card. Attach the poinsettia on top. Add red berries.
Cut the Snowflake Garland die cut so you can attach it across the top of the framed snowman and a piece down under the poinsettia.
Use the Winter Sentiments Clear Stamp set to stamp the sentiment on white card stock using black ink. Cut around the sentiment using scissors. Pat the sentiment onto a VersaMark Pad and clear emboss. Attach to the lower left corner.
