Today I am sharing a card designed with the retired Stampin’ Up! Garden Snowmen and paired with a sentiment from Beautiful You (a current Stampin’ Up! set).
I have always loved the fun snowman images in this set and have not inked them in a while. I will be sharing another card later with the second snowman image in this set :-)
I used the Splitcoaststampers SC372 Sketch Challenge (this sketch is from 2012) for the layout and am also linking to The Paper Players #470 Laurie's “Frosty the Snowman” Challenge and the Time Out #150 “Merry and Cheerful” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will visit the above challenge sites- such great inspiration from all!
To create this card- Ink the snowman image with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink and stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the image with water-based markers and distress oxide ink. Die cut the panel with a stitched square die, mount onto white cardstock and trim close to the edge.
Heat emboss the sentiment using the same steps above, die cut with a stitched circle die and mount onto a circle of white cardstock. Adhere the circle to the main focal image creating the half moon shape for the sketch.
Emboss a piece of white cardstock with a snowflake embossing folder, trim and mount onto the white card base.
Add the layered focal image/sentiment onto the card front using dimensional foam or chipboard (I have been using chipboard) lately.
Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to all of the snow, snow balls and snowmen to finish off the card.
