For my card I punched out three white circles...1 1/4", 1 3/8", 1 1/2 "....and 3 black circles the same sizes. To matte the white circles, I cut the black circles almost in half, leaving 1/8th of an inch uncut. The black circle was opened up enough to see it under the white circle and then taped in place. When the three circles were taped together, the black matting looked like a shadow. An Impress snowman face stamp was colored with markers and stamped on the face circle and the hat was drawn on black card stock, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. A twig die cut was used for the arms, a brad for the hat, and buttons finish off the snowman.
The sky was created by embossing a piece of Marina Mist card stock and coloring the swirls with Stickles. My Minds Eye paper was used for the snow...the hills were cut and sewn, the sentiment is from the Verve set called Winter Mittens and the button and twine are the finishing touches.
TFL and I hope you can join us for this weeks TLC challenge!!!

What a fabulous, detailed, FUN card! So many great elements, and doing the black "shadow" punches that way is so clever - I've never heard of that trick but will be using it a lot in the future! Love your choice of papers and the glittery embossed swirly background. LOVE this card!
