For Joan's Technique challenge to make our own snowman. This was the perfect idea for using my Jillibean snowman designer paper and making this box and card set.
Here's a closer view of the card only.
I made a large snowman for my card and more of a gift tag size for the 3 x 3 box I made following the tutorial in the Tutorials section.
I used various sizes of circle Nestabilities for the snowmen bodies. I used Eva Gray large and small burgundy brads for their bodies. I used rectangle Nestabilities to make my hats. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch for the snowflakes on their hats. I used markers for their eyes, mouths, and noses. I used twine for their scarves.
On the card, I die cut the three circles, slightly overlapping them, out of the Jillibean designer paper. Then I added my snowman, popping him up on dimensionals. You can't see it in my photo, but I embossed his hat with the square lattice embossing folder.
For the bottom part of the box and the base of the card, I used snowflake stamps to create a coordinating designer paper with my snowman designer paper.
