I didn't really have a suitable snowman stamp so decided to go with my favourite lintel digi snowman from Mo Manning "Giggling Snowman"
I printed him off on some X-Press it 250 gm blending card then brayered the colours over the top blending them in. I lifted some of the colour from the snowman with a mop brush water and a piece of paper towel taking care not to gt the card too wet.
I outlined the image with the Nuvo Drops and the hat and scarf with Dimensional Pearls.
I stamped then over stamped and clear heat embossed the greeting added the ribbon and mounted the whole thing on some craft foam before layering it with the other two coloured card stock and that's it folks, hope you find him as cute as I do.

Oh, what a wonderful Christmas card this is. You have used the colors brilliantly here to show what a chilly day it is outside, yet your beautiful embossed greeting leaves one feeling warm and fuzzy all over. I think this snowman is as cute as they come, especially with all the extra touches you added to the hat and scarf. And you tied this card up so beautifully with this gorgeous bow. ~Karen.

Oh, Marg, this is absolutely darling! I love this sweet giggling snowman and love how you've used the colors. Beautiful sponging and a great way to give dimension with the dimensional pearls! I love it! So glad to see you made this for the Fan Club/Dirty Dozen Challenge. I see you have another, and it's good that you are making a bunch before the "big move." I hope it goes well and that you are feeling better, sweet friend! Hugs and love! xoxo
