Merry Christmas Snowman Card

  Hi friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Can you believe it is December 1??? 
The first of the month means it is time for a new challenge at 

Here is a look at the photo inspiration for this month: 

The picture is for inspirational purposes so if the picture doesn't strike your fancy, you can enter a WINTER themed project. The picture is purely optional.

I was inspired by a few things in the photo. The snowman, the red bird, the snow and the plaid on Santa's bag.  So many possibilities with this picture!

Here is a look at the card that I created:

I started my card by creating a white card base and covering it with some plaid patterned paper. I added a strip of red cardstock down the middle and added some doodled lines around the perimeter using a black sharpie pen. I stamped my image from Gerda Steiner with some black ink and used my Copic markers to color it in. Once I had it colored, I used a oval flourish die to cut it out & popped it up onto my card with some foam tape. I used some of the same plaid paper to paper piece his little scarf and hat band. I stamped my greeting with some black ink & used a fishtail die to cut it out. I cut a piece of red cardstock with the same fishtail die and just added the ends so that it helped the sentiment stand out a bit. I finished my card by adding some snowflake sequins and some white Nuvo drops to act as falling snow and some glossy accents to his coal buttons.

Copic Colors Used:
--Snowman: B0000, B000--
--Hat/Buttons: C3, C5, C7--
--Holly: R27, R89, G46--

This card is cleverly CUTE!! I LOVE how you paper pieced his hat band and scarf from the same plaid paper! The added red strip down the middle really makes Mr. Frosty stand out too with that cute red bird on his nose! A super FUN card!
