Frosty the Snowman

I absolutely cannot get enough of the Christmas carols during the holiday season.  Now I will admit I have been known to break into a holiday song at many times during the year.  For some reason, this music just brings a smile to my face and adds a pep in my step.  When I turned on the holiday channel on tv that plays the seasonal music today, I was happy to hear "Frosty the Snowman" playing and began singing along.  Of course, that led to my going through my Christmas stamps again  to see if I could create another card.  Imagine my excitement when I came across one of a snowman with a broom.  He just went along with the song and I had to stamp with it. 

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.
