Chilly Snowman


Hi everyone!  I recently discovered this awesome site, Free Digital Stamps, a blog that lists free digital images all in one place!  In one of the posts I grabbed this Chilly Snowman from Spyder's Corner.  Isn't this snowman a little cutie!!!  As for my card, I basically ended up adding any and every embellishment that comes in the shape of a snowflake, LOL!!!


My card base is Baja Breeze layered with Blue Bayou then Snow Flurries patterned paper.  The shadow layer is Blue Bayou finished on both sides using the Scallop Dot Punch.  I also wrapped white ribbon around it and taped the ends down on the back side.  The image was printed on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I die cut and embossed the image using Classic Ovals Small Nestabilities and layered it on to Baja Breeze die cut using my new Beaded Ovals Nestabilities. 

To embellish the cards I added a white bow finished with a button threaded with DMC White.  The snowflake is Blue Bayou cardstock punched using the Snowflake Punch layered with a clear snowflake then a white snowflake brad finished with a snow pearl.  I also added two snow pearls in some of the corners.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
