We used to live in northwest Wyoming and was used to lots of snow. We used to snowmobile and ski... Great fun! I didn't like the wind when it snowed as it would cut right through your clothing and make you miserable. Hated driving in blizzards, had some close calls when I couldn't see the road.. But I love snowmen and one of the instructors at the AZ Scrapbooking store taught a class a couple months ago making a 3-D snowman, Santa, and more. She was my inspiration for this card.
The background paper is from Paperbilities. I used my Super Jumbo and Extra Jumbo circle punches to make the snowman. I cut a piece of black card stock for the hat and used a slot punch to make the brim. The text is from the Jingle Jolly set stamped in Night Sky VersaMagic ink.
I made the stitches on the hat with my white gel pen and punched the 2 flower pieces from DCWV card stock. (I think I should have sanded the edges of the top layer to make it pop more.) The metallic center of the flower was attached with my I * Rock tool. The eyes and mouth were hand dotted with a black glitter gel pen. Can you see the Icicle Stickles on the snowflake behind the snowman's head?? I dotted ALL the snowflakes on the outside circles and the centers.
Here you can see the snowman's body. I punched 5 circles, folded them in half, and adhered them together. I also added the Stickles around the torn edge of the "snow" ground and added lines to look like more snow. The arms were cut by hand from brown card stock. I was going to use a snowflake punch but I didn't have any large enough so had to make do with cutting with scissors.
