A big congrats to Leslie, the newest Featured Stamper! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the snowman & snowflakes but I used different images & dies & made a special window opening for my snowman. I also added a greeting.
For my snowman, after coloring & cutting him out, I wanted to try a little something extra for the window I wanted to put him into. I took a smallish rectangle die but cut it on an angle & not all the way to the bottom the inserted the curved border die to finish the inside cut. (I took some step by step pics to show the process.)
I cut another small piece of stitched hill & attached it behind this one. Then I had the (not so) brilliant idea to add the little zigzag frame. I like it, but you can't really tell what I did w/ the angled cut now. Oh well! And then I dropped the BG10 marker on the frame, so I colored the whole thing w/ it. That part actually worked...now it shows up better. The snowman was popped up a bit & a small piece of snowflake paper was added behind him. Then the greeting was added & the snowflakes were stamped w/ the pale aqua ink.
Thanks so much for looking. It's on my blog w/ Copic colors, lots of detail pics & links: The Write Stuff

Julie, first I absolutely love the designer paper and color combination. That snowman is precious and I love how you popped him up on the outside of the frame. How creative to use one of the border dies to make the snow layers. It seems you out do yourself with every card you make.
