It's Pure Innocence day and there are soooooo many little cuties this month! I wanted to use them all, but had to make a tough decision and choose, so I decided to work with Pure Innocence Holiday Hugs Snowman.

I adore snowmen...so much so that I have a snowman collection that I decorate the house with at Christmas. Plus I love using snowmen on cards because they're so quick to colour!

I stamped him twice so I could cut out his hat and pop it for dimension. Let's talk about the greens I used on his hat...it was an experiment to get the right shade and I just kept layering on colours until it looked right. The YG13 & YG25 combo was too bright, the others were too somber, but when I layered them all together they were just right.

Do you spy a new die-namic? That would be the new Icicle Border die-namic...definitely a must-have for winter projects. I also added a snowflake cut out with the medium size of the let it snowflake die-namics. Oh, and the patterned paper is Echo Park Season's Greetings.

On the inside I stamped the snowman again in light blue and added another sentiment from the set.

Here are the die-namics I used:

This is card #32 for my Project Christmas 2011.
Thanks for stopping by!
