Sparkly Snowman

I wanted to make a card using the adorable snowman from Hangin' Out At the North Pole, which is available at Taylored Expressions. I just love the way he's looking to the sky like he's waiting for a big snow storm. Now don't get me wrong though...I'm not looking for a snow storm, at least not yet, although I am looking forward to ski season!

I used SSS78 from the Sweet Stop Sketch blog for the layout and it was a "sketch with a spin", to make it sparkly. I stamped the snowman with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and coloured it with copics. Then I used my Take Note Die 3 to cut him out. I also used my Winter Wonderland snowflake dies and coordinating Winter Wonderland stamp set to create the snowflake accent. The red snowflake is cut out of felt. For the sparkle I coated the snowman with glue and covered him with glitter...sooooo sparkly IRL!!! He actually kinda reminds me of Edward in the Twilight scene when he shows Bella how he sparkles in the sunshine!  Hee Hee!!  :)


Thanks for stopping by!
