Snowman Card

Somehow another week has gone screeching through my life and the weekend is just around the corner!  Is it just me getting old or is time really flying?  Here in East Tennessee we are beginning to see signs that Fall is just around the corner.  The days are getting shorter, temps are cooling, the mornings are foggy and before you know it there will be frost on the pumpkin!  With all that in mind, Christmas is just around the corner and Heartfelt Creations has released some wonderful Christmas stamps, papers and dies. 

This morning I'm here to share another card I made using these wonderful products!

Heartfelt Creations Products Used:

HCPC 3551 Holly Berry PreCut Set
HCD 738 Ornamental Add On Die
HCPC 3415 Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set
HCDP1 236 Christmas Card Paper Collection
Art Glitter Dries Clear Glue
459222 Paper Blossoms Tool Kit
Viva 3D Stamp Paint (Carmine Red Metallic and Moss Green Metallic)

Other Supplies:  Spellbinders Dies (Layered Poinsettia, Standard Circle Large, Standard Circle Small, A2-Scalloped Borders One)
Glue, Scor-Tape, Memento Ink, glitter, yellow marker, stamen, white and blue card stock, Canson watercolor paper

Instructions:  Card Size: 6” X 6”
Make card base using watercolor paper for strength and stability.  Cover card base with a pretty piece of the paper collection.  Cut out two pieces of the A2-Scalloped Borders one and tape them together, sort of making a scalloped border for the center of the card.  I cut out the snowman using a circle die and then matted it with a dark blue piece of cardstock and then taped it to the center of the scalloped piece on the center of the card.  I used the art glitter glue and some white glitter to add some interest to the snowman circle piece.  Next I stamped and cut out the flowers and leaves and applied the 3D Stamp paint and set them aside to dry.  I cut the end pieces of the stamen and colored them with the yellow marker; glue them to the center of the flowers after you have glued the petals together.  Next I chose a sentiment and cut it out and applied some dimensional tape behind it to pop it up.  Decide where you want the flowers and leaves to be placed and then glue them down.  Such an easy card and really simple to do using the papers from the collection!

Well that is it for me this morning.  I hope your day is filled with Joy and that you get to do something you love!

Don't you just love this dapper little snowman? He really steals the show. Your flowers are beautiful, and and really like the way you used that border beneath the focal image. Another lovely creation. It never got out of the 70's here yesterday...such a treat in mid-August. xoxo

How cute! Perfect stamps to work with for Christmas cards. I love seeing that glint of glitter on the snow scene. We are feeling fall coming on here, as well. I'm trying to get the most out of the summer we have left.
