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.

I'm playing in the CT1014 /Dirty Dozen Fan Club Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The challenge is Hopelessly Devoted and there are many choices. My hubby is a veteran so this card is for him. He is totally devoted to the military and its men and women, retired and active. I know he will be remembering the many sacrifices made by so many today as we are celebrating Veterans Day. 

To what I am hopelessly devoted to in my crafting ( and, there are so many) and that I used on this card would be something you can't see...dimensionals/pop dots. I use them all the time. My white cardstock is popped up today on my base card.

This was an easy peasy card.  I used acrylic paint for the red stripes and die cut the star. Added a sentiment,  brad,  and twine and it was finished.
