With all the hot weather evrywhere, snow might sound refreshing! But, what I am sharing today is a cute little snowman. I saw this idea at Convention and fell in love with it. I couldn't wait to try it out myself. And, what kind of friend would I be if I didn't share it with you?
The base of my card is actually the Card Base Pop 'n Cuts Die with some folding. The Deco Labels Collection was used for my snowman layer and the mat. White Craft Ink brings the snowman to life. The rest of him is stamped with Early Espresso Ink.
When I think about my top 10 favorite things in the new Holiday Mini, the Expressions Thinlits Dies have to be near the top of the list. The trick to using them is to place a piece of waxed paper between the die and your paper. Works like a charm!
Topping the snowman off is his hat which is stamped with Old Olive Ink, fussy cut and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I looped some Linen Thread around the base of the Deco Label and tied it in a bow. It is simply decorative and has no "function".
What self respecting snowman would be caught without a decent scarf?
This scarf was fashioned from the new 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon. However, the 7/16" Trim would have worked as well.
If enough people leave a comment saying that you are interested in how to fold the card base, then I will post directions.
