Cute Snowman

 Snowmen always make me smile!   This cute snowman is an old stamp I have had for years, by Inkadinkado, but I think he might be my favorite.  I decided to frame him in the Marianne Design CR1261 frame.  For the embossed background, I used the new Marianne Design DF3405 embossing folder.  The embossing folder did not cover the entire portion of the top of the card, so down the left side, I used my Scor-Pal to draw three diagonal lines to fill the empty space.  Three pearls were placed at the top. 

The Marianne Design CR1261 frame is open in the center.  I stamped the snowman on a separate piece of card stock and cut around him to fit under the open frame.  The frame was attached over the stamped image with dimensional tape, then the entire frame attached to the card with  more dimensional tape.  Glitter was added to the edges of the frame and to the snowflakes in the stamped design.

The "Snow Buddies are the Best!" sentiment is from the Stampendous "Build A Snowman" stamp set.  The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from a Hero Arts Poly Clear Christmas Sentiment stamp set.

 Here is a closeup so you can see the glitter and how the frame is elevated.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
