Glittered Snowman

Hi there, Shona back with you today with another glittered project for Christmas. Today I chose to use the Tutti Designs Arched Fir Branch with the Tutti Designs Jolly Snowman peeking out from behind.


Here are the two dies I used on my card today:




For my background I started with the Sizzix Plaid and Snowflake embossing folder set, running the snowflake folder through my machine.


Next I worked on the snowman. First I die cut him from a piece of white cardstock applied with a layer of Super Adhesive Tape.   


Different parts of him were then cut from red, green, orange and black cardstock to "color" him in.


The protective backing of the adhesive was picked off the scarf, and inlaid with the red card, and I continued until all the colors were done.


Then I picked off the outline of the die cut and put down Snow White flocking.


I used Cherry Sparkle and Irish Sparkle to add to the inlaid pieces of the scarf and hat.



Twinkling Clouds was applied to the little swirls on his belly, but the contrast in the design did not show up as well as I'd have liked, so I decided to redo his belly. I die cut a piece of white cardstock layered with the Super Adhesive Tape again and then cut out the shape of the belly and picked out the little swirls.


This time the details showed up much better!



The Arched Fir Branch was then die cut from olive green cardstock and attached to the top of the front panel. The snowman was tucked under the fir branch with mounting tape.



The card front was layered to red before being layered to the card front. Happy Holidays from Sparkle N Sprinkle Sayings Set 223 was stamped along the bottom in Memento Love Letter Ink and that finished my card off for today.
