Everything on this card is one of my favourite things! :) I adore snowmen and SU's snowman punch, I fell in love with this ribbon from Michaels (but it's danged hard to use!), and the sentiment is by my all-time fave stamp company, My Sentiments Exactly.
I did a lot of gallery gazing to figure out how to put this card together, so thank you to everyone who's uploaded a card with the snowman punch!
I punched out the snowmen from Domtar 110# bright white CS, coloured his hat in with a black Sharpie, and ran him face-down through the Xyron. I hope he didn't find the experience too upsetting. After I peeled off the adhesive backing, I shook him around in white glitter, rubbed the glitter firmly into the adhesive, and then took care of any adhesive overages with my fingernails.
I punched the blue square out using my McGill deckle edge 1 9/16 square punch, stamped it with a small hearts background in white pigment ink, and drew the snowy ground on top of that with a qtip dipped in the white pigment ink (a tip I gleaned from one of the many snowman punch card uploads). I layered this on top of white cs trimmed with my own two hands, and layered this on top of the apple green CS punched out using my McGill 1 7/8" punch. Then I placed the snowman on using small glue dots to give it a wee bit of dimension.
I adhered the ribbon on after running it through the Xyron, stamped the sentiment in Broken China, and added the snowman square.
Thanks for looking! I am so happy with how this batch of cards turned out!!!!!
