Mashed Up Snowman

I was so excited to see I was chosen over at the Friday Mashup as part of last weeks Glam Squad for my shaker card!  Such pressure!!! I thought I would do another card for their snowman/color challenge.

Feature a snowman...or use the colors Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze and Basic Gray....or both.  After searching through my sets, I found one snowman in last years Jolly Old Saint Nick set.  Can you believe this is the only snowman stamp I have???

I also had the bright idea to use window sheets with the card.  It is difficult to tell in this picture but here is what I did!
  1. I made the card as usual, using Baja Breeze as my card base, and layered with some retired Blushing Bride patterns paper.  I colored the snowman with blender pens and added the sentiment.
  2. I cut and scored a medium window sheet to the same size as the card (8 1/2 by 5 1/2).
  3. On the front of the window sheet card, I stamped the snowflakes from the set with Versamark, then added heat and stick powder and dazzling diamonds.  This is the first time I have used that powder!  What took me so long??   lol
  4. To attach the window sheet card to the card base, I punched two holes in the fold of the card and threaded silver twine and some clear tinsel twine (also from last year), tied a bow and added a few bells.

With this bow, won't fit very well in an envelope!  
Hope you are well and not fighting the cold that I am ! cough cough cough!

  2. Hi Lauri, I love that you went outside the box and used the window sheet for your card, it certainly adds a great dimension to your creation.
