Snow time

Here is sunny Phoenix, we do not usually see snow.  We can travel north to the Flagstaff area and play for a day but it is really rare to see snowflakes here.  I will say however that it has happened.  Many times especially as we get closer to Christmas, I wish I could be where the snow is.  I remember rolling up big snowballs when I was little and making a snowman with my brother and sister.  I do miss those times.  We seem to always have a bright sunny day for Christmas.

I pulled out a binder that I put unmounted stamps in to go through the other night.  I came across this little guy and just had to share him with you. 

Is he not one of the sweetest little snowmen you have ever seen?  Now he is not a Stampin' Up! stamp but I still think he is wonderful.  I love his presents and his festive hat.  Let's start at the beginning though with the base card.  The base is Pacific Point card stock.  I then took a piece of Bashful Blue to layer on top of it.  Before putting it on, I stamped snowflakes (another non-SU! stamp) all over it in VersaMark.  Using a white embossing powder with silver glitter in it, I heat embossed the snowflakes.  Once it was finished, I adhered it to the Pacific Point.  Taking a scrap of Whisper White, I tore several strips to place across the bottom of the card to form my layers of snow.  I added dazzling diamond glitter to the top edge of each layer.  My snowman was then attached using dimensionals.  

Here we can see him a littler closer.  I started him by stamping him with StazOn ink on Whisper White card stock.  I added color to him using colored pencils.  Once I finished coloring, I cut him out.  I added some Stickles glitter glue to highlight the snowman as well as the presents.  You can also see that I used the Dazzling Details glitter glue to add snowballs falling in the sky.  As I said before, he is attached to the card using dimensionals.

When I was ready to add a greeting to my card, I could not find what I wanted.  So I turned to my handy big shot machine.  I used the Decorative Strip called Billboard to cut letters out of Pacific Point card stock.  I decided to make the word "PEACE".  I found my letters in capitals, ran the strip through again to get a second "E", glued the letters to the card, and added some dazzling diamond glitter to highlight them.  
I have so much fun coming up with Christmas Cards.  I hope you enjoyed this one.  I will return tomorrow with another card.  See you then and thanks for popping in today!!
