Sparkly Season Snowman

Fab Friday Logos-078Hey everyone!  I decided to try out Fab Friday Challenge #76.  Here is the sketch used to make my card.  It was a lot of fun designing the card and finally figuring out what to do with the black snowflake paper from the Winter Wonderland DSP pack.

To make the card, start with a basic black card base of 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″.  Cut a piece of Winter Wonderland snowflake DSP to 3 3/4″ x 5″.  Adhere it to the front of the card with snail adhesive.

Cut a strip of the white and gold Winter Wonderland paper to 1 1/2″ x 5″.  With the banner triple punch finish both ends.

Stamp the snowman image from the Sparkly Seasons stamp set on to whisper white cardstock and color with real red, garden green and pumpkin pie markers.


Next, stamp the falling snow image from the Sparkly Seasons stamp set in versa mark ink above the snowman.  Sprinkle with  heat and stick powder and melt with heat gun.  Sprinkle with dazzling diamonds glitter and heat set again.  Punch the image out with the 2 1/2″ circle punch.  Adhere the snowman to the banner.

Add some snail to the fabfri76_2back of the snowman and banner.  Using approximately 24″ of gold cording trim, wrap it the circles around the snowman on the back.  Affix dimensionals over the cord to hold it in place.  Adhere to the front of the card.

Add dazzling details from the squeeze bottle to the snowbank and hat.  Adhere five pearls to the front of the card as shown.

For the inside, cut a piece of whisper white card stock to 3 3/4″ x 5″.  Attach a strip of the snowflake DSP to the bottom.  Stamp with a sentiment in black ink and attach to the inside of the card.
