He is just so happy to be out in the snow. Now I don't know about you, but when I made snowmen as a child, they were cute, very cute in fact. But they were not as cute as this one. The base card for this is made with Cherry Cobbler card stock. I then took a piece of Bashful Blue card stock and stamped it with a snowflake stamp from the retired set called Christmas Punch. They were stamped using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I tore strips of Whisper White card stock to layer across the bottom of the blue section and highlighted the edges with dazzling diamond glitter. I did dot the sky using dazzling details (a glitter glue) after I added the snowman onto the card. Then my card was ready for the other items to be added.
Here you can see Frosty close up. I stamped him on Whisper White using StazOn ink. I chose this ink so that I would be able to color him sooner that with the classic ink. I chose colored pencils to color with on this one. I must admit, I am a Crayola fanatic. While the pencils I used on this card are not Crayola, I do have an extensive collection of their colored pencils and crayons. Yes, I still like to color in coloring books with crayons. It really relaxes me!! I added some glitter to his scarf, hat, and nose to give him a little pizzazz. He is attached to the card using dimensionals.
The greeting on this one was easy for me. When I looked at my finished snowman, I thought about the great joy it brought to me. So the word "Joy" was a perfect fit. It is made using Cherry Cobbler card stock. Once the letters were cut out with my big shot, I glued them to the front of the card. Adding dazzling diamond glitter to them was a no brainer for me. Of course they had to be sparkly. After all, the rest of the card is.
Well that's it for this Monday's post. I want to wish my youngest daughter's boyfriend a very Happy 21st Birthday!! Tomorrow I will share the card I made for him with you. By the way, are you all ready for Thanksgiving? I am almost ready myself. Thanks for dropping by today and I will see you tomorrow.
