Snowman With Red Polka Dots


Today's Splitcoaststampers Inspiration challenge/IC467 is to use inspiration from the website, Harry and David. I found this wonderful photo.  Isn't that yummy looking. Actually, it was the snowmen that inspired me, though I could certainly eat those wonderful looking chocolate dipped strawberries. 

I had also found this card I wanted to case. I found it on Pinterest and traced it back to Splitcoaststampers. I just love it. Mine is a little more simple than hers but I still like it. 

My snowman head was cut with a Spellbinders circle nestabilitie and then trimmed off about 1/4 at the bottom. It was then placed  under the ribbon. 

I hand cut the nose, embossed, and added some glitter. 

I made three of these for my grandchildren in different colors, twines,  and ribbons. I hope they love them.

Recipe:
Stamps-Stampabilities/Handwritten Merry Christmas
Paper-Stampin'Up! Crumb Cake cardstock, PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-Red Polka dot grosgrain ribbon, silver metallic twine, star button, small black buttons for eyes, Cuttlebug embossing folder/scalloped edge, Spellbinders circle nestabilitie

Today at lunch, I took a walk, but it's about 32 degrees outside. My face got numb, so I had to come back in! felt like a snowman myself. :)

Wieder so ein niedlicher Schneemann. Schneemänner sind die lustigsten Motive für eine Winterkarte. Deine Idee ihn über das Band sehen zu lassen, ist super, Brenda.
Liebe Grüße, Anja
