I started by cutting out all the papers that I used......the background, the long rectangles along with their matting paper, and the paper the snowman sits on. I ran the 3 long rectangles through the snowflakes embossing folder in the Cuttlebug. Place them black side up so you get the embossed image. It doesn't work well if you use the debossed side. Place them on their matted blue paper. I took the Faded Jeans distress ink and ran it along the edges.
I also ran the paper the snowman sits on through the same embossing folder. I used the debossed side because the embossed side will make the snowman sticker very bumpy. I matted that on white cardstock that I inked with faded jeans. I used the ink applicator tool to do so. Place them togethor and add the snowman on top. I added stickles to the ear muffs and the fringe on his scarf to add a little sparkle.
Lastly, the ribbon. I did it in 2 pieces. I laid 1 long piece on the card then took a small piece of ribbon and tied a knot then cut the ends at an angle and placed it on the existing ribbon.
