Snowman ... Let it Snow

Hello, everyone!  I've made another holiday card! This one features an adorable snowman from Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Snowman Trio Blocks.  I used the third image in the trio and removed the lines of the block so I could die-cut him into a circle. He's coloured with Prismacolor pencils.


Here are the other items used:

  • Dies: Poppystamps Let it Snow Channel, Gina Marie Scalloped Circle Frame, Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles
  • Embossing folder: Taylored Expressions Winter Flurry
  • Sentiment stamp: Your Next Stamp Holiday Snow Globe (heat embossed in silver)
  • Embossing powder: Zing Glitter Finish Silver
  • Glitter cardstock: Dollarama
  • Accents: Sequins from my stash

I was inspired by the sketch at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Christmas in July - Day 2:

It's a wonderful clean card (I think it's a CAS), so cute and also elegant, my friend!! Such a delightful design! You have made a very clever use of that block image, the circle frame makes the snowman more cute and sweet!! Great sparkling details and LOVE the big sentiment between the two blue stripes!!

A darling snowman image and I love your embossed background and the addition of the silver too. Beautiful card design.

Pia S said...

Cropping and removing lines is a great idea to use to transform the overall look of an image, I think it's something I could do more often myself. It turned out great with the one snowman out of a trio. I really like the cut out sentiment on the bottom border too. Nice take on the sketch. Hope to see you join in more of our Christmas challenges at Catch the Bug this week.
