I was really intrigued by today's sketch challenge - I flipped it and used a long tall card. All stamping was heat embossed using 'Stardust' EP so it's very sparkly.
I love snowmen images and I really LOVE this snowman, he is so jolly, he always makes me smile! I love him so much I have 4 stamps with him on - I have this giant image, a smaller version, one where he is juggling snowballs and the small square one that you can see I used on the envelope.
I also love the sentiment 'Snowmen fall from heaven unassembled' so that got used here too. I stamped and then cut it out with a circle punch, swiped blue ink round and added some ribbon and a snowflake brad.
DP is Frances Meyer 'Snowy Stripes'. I used my scallop circle punch and swiped blue ink round the scalloped edge.
Snowman image stamped once direct to the blue card blank and again on white CS. I coloured white CS image using watercolour pencils, cut around and 3d mounted him with foam pads. Orange stickles added to his nose and crystal ice stickles added to a few snow dots and the ground.
