Birthday Snowman

     I'm still working on getting my stash of birthday cards restocked so here's another fun winter card.  The snowman image is from Melonheadz.


I used the colors from the challenge at Color My Heart.


     I used my ProMarkers to color the image and added a bit of sparkle with gel ink.  This time, I did something a bit different when it came to cutting out the image.  I took two of my new border dies (Spellbinders), placed one on each side of the image and used them to die cut it, trimming it top and bottom with my paper trimmer.

     The background polka dot paper is embossed and glittered, and the ribbon came from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The snowflake is a die cut, too.

     Challenges:
Craft for the Craic
Creative Moments
Double D
Inky Impressions
Kitty Bee Designs
Southern Girls
Star Stampz
Through the Purple Haze

     I hope those of you back East are managing to dig out from under the many inches of snow which piled onto you last weekend and that power is back on at your house.  If you're still snowed in, what a great excuse to craft all day.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  7. Great image and I like the way you used your dies. Those big shoes made me laugh. The blue snowflake and the ribbon are an ideal choice for this one. Too bad all that snow from the east couldn't be transported to the west coast and let it melt to help with your drought situation our there. Enjoy the day.
