I do not think we would have ever succeeded in trying to build a snowman like this. But let's start at the beginning of this card. I began with a piece of Whisper White card stock cut at 5 1/2" x 11", scored at 4 1/4". I used a non-SU! background stamp of snowflakes and stamped them in the retired color Brilliant Blue. I covered the entire front with them. I then took a scrap piece of Christmas wrapping paper and used it as my first layer. It has a foil like quality about it and has snowflakes all over it too. I set this aside and began work on my snowmen. The piece of card stock is trimmed out using a pair of decorative scissors I have. I wanted to do something to the edges instead of just edging them with ink and this seemed to work. Now for the snowman totem pole.
I bought this stamp at a local craft store. I thought it was the cutest thing I had seen in a long time. The totem pole was something I had never seen done with snowmen and I thought they would bring a smile to others faces. I started by stamping them in StazOn ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock, cut it down to the size I wanted using my paper trimmer, and then went ahead and trimmed the edges with decorative scissors. I used my colored pencils to color the snowmen in. On this particular card, I went with the purple family. I liked how it looked against the wrapping paper. I also made other cards with different scrap wrapping papers in red, green, and light blue. This is a great way to recycle paper and adds a lot of decoration to your cards. I add dazzling diamond glitter to the pom pom on the top snowman, the earmuffs of the middle snowman, and the holly leaves on the bottom snowman. Cute, cute, cute.
I am working on several cards to share in the up coming days. You will just have to come back tomorrow to see what card I will have ready for you to see. Thank you so much for stopping by today.
