This week over at Christmas Card Challenges we have a beautiful color challenge. These happen to be my favorite Christmas colors to work with!
I decided to do a snowman today and use a die set from PTI that I've never used. I die cut the snowman and his hat from white cardstock. His hat has three die cuts: the main hat, the brim, and the tassel on top. I stamped the hat in blue, the brim in red and the tassel was covered in Liquid Applique. While it was wet, I sprinkled some glitter on it then heat it. It becomes fluffy and looks like the top of a ski hat. I finished him off with his face and buttons then stamped some snow flakes on the bottom of him. To make him shimmery, I spritzed him with some perfect pearls mist. I added some twine for his scarf and a small button die cut. I used some texture paste and a falling snow stencil on the background. The buttons are also die cuts.
I used the Freshly Made Sketch for my layout.
You can see more on the Christmas Card Challenge blog for more inspiration.
