Cute Snowman

I am so excited to post this card.  I LOVE to create cute snowman cards.  I hope you love this card as much as I do.  All these cute dies and the snowman stamp are available from Joan's Gardens.

This is a 5.5" x 6" card.  I embossed the "snowy" background by using the eBosser "Delicate Dots" embossing folder.  Next I die cut the new Joy "Oval Frames" dies to frame this adorable snowman.  I used all pieces in this die set.  The outer delicate frame has Ranger Distress Stickles "Clear Rock Candy" glued to it.  The inside portion of this frame is cut when when die cut so it was easy to use "Weathered Wood" Distress Ink to shade it.  The scalloped part of the die cut is what I stamped the snowman on.  I stamped the snowman twice so I could cut him out to make him dimensional.  I cut off the broom so it appears to be behind the snowman.  Copic markers were used to color him.  Along the bottom of this stamped image, I cut around the scalloped edge so I could add white Liquid Applique.  Before I heat set the Liquid Applique, I sprinkled on the Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles glitter.  On the image stamped on the scalloped oval, I sponged on Weathered Wood Distress Ink up close to the image to help make the snowman stand out.   The scalloped oval and the cut out snowman were added with dimensional tape.  (Add the Liquid Applique after you sponge and attach the snowman to the oval.)

The snowman is from the Marianne "Vintage Christmas Stamps (CS0878).   In this set is also the sentiment which has a frame around it.  This was stamped on blue card stock using VersaMark and white embossed.  I used scissors to cut around the design.  The little flourishes you see on the card are included in the Joy "Oval Frame Set.  I added two sets of these flourishes to the card.  The beautiful snowflake are from the Joy Crafts 6002/2021 and 6002/2019 dies.  The larger snowflake has micro fine blue glitter added to it and layered on top is the smaller snowflake which has the Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles dry glitter added.  In the center is a Kaiser Craft blue pearl.  The snowflake as attached with a small piece of dimensional tape.

 I seldom show you the inside of my cards, but I just have to show you this one.  I love it.  Along the top I added the Joy Crafts "Snowflake Border".  Isn't it beautiful.  I folded the card in half before I started, and sponged on "Weathered Wood" Distress Ink.  I used a baby wipe to soften out the lower edges, then glued on the snowflake border along the fold of the card.  I added the Marianne Design "Ski's and Poles".  The skis were die cut using blue card stock and then I used a Sharpie Silver Paint Pen to color the embossed areas.  The poles were die cut using black card stock.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "Christmas Inner Thoughts" stamp set.

I know a lot of you like to create cards to similar to mine.  I would love it if you would link back your cards on this post, if you create one similar to this.  I would love to see your card.
