Framed Snowman



You all know by now how much I love a snowman. So, Christmas cards will be so enjoyable for me to make. You'll probably see several here. 

I made my card for the HYCCT1415 challenge on Splitcoaststampers: Soft and Cozy  One of the soft things you could use was felt so I added a glittery piece at the top and stamped it with my sentiment, Peace and Love. 

My snowman today is a digital image from Dearie Dolls called Berry Crown. I colored him with Copics, cut him out, and popped him inside my frame. The sentiment is from Hot off the Press/Christmas Words.

I found this corrugated paper pad either at Jo-Ann Stores or Hobby Lobby. I just love it and had to use it for this card. It is from DCWV/Printed Corrugated Stack. The frame was cut with a Spellbinders die and popped up with dimensionals. I added falling snow with Winsor and Newton water color in Chinese White. It comes in a tube and came from the craft section in Hobby Lobby.

I used a Martha Stewart holly punch and an Impression Obsession pine branch die. The berries are covered with Glossy Accents. The crown of berries is covered with Xmas Red Stickles.

That's it for me today. Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. The weather here should be beautiful. We'll probably get in some outside things before the winter weather arrives.

Liebe Brenda,
deine Karte ist so niedlich gestaltet. Der Schneemann schaut auch sehr freundlich und hat einen schönen Kontrast zum Hintergrund. Auch der Stempelspruch passt sehr schön.
Liebe Grüße und ein schönes Wochenende, Anja

He's a real cutie .... and I would imagine he's not your only new snowman image!! Lovin your snowy boughs at the top too :)
Hope you managed to get out in your garden for the tidy up - our weather is a bit wet and windy, so if I manage to get out to get those leaves picked up I'll be doing well!

K-ute! Am loving the cutie of a snowman, with all the paper texture (hmm, think I might have this pad purchased from the same store! TFor reminding me!). The pop of the bright green felt was a perfect trim. TFS & Hugs
