Snow!

CASology has the cue word ‘Snow’ this week.

Week 126 - Snow

I have done a few one layer snowflake cards recently, so this week I decided to shake things up a bit (groan). I made my first ever shaker card and filled it with powdery snow (aka white glitter)!  I can definitely see why shaker cards are popular. They really are a lot of fun!

To create the impression of snow, I dry-embossed the base cardstock and background panel using Stampin’ Up!’s Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.

The snowman has been die-cut from the front panel using the snowman die from Clearly Besotted’s In Stitches Christmas Die Collection, and then stamped in Stazon Black on the front of the acetate.

And given all this chilly ‘snow’, Frosty was wrapped in a blue felt scarf, die-cut using the scarf die from the aforementioned die collection.

Lots of white, snowy space on this one!

If I had time, I would do a range of these little guys, all wearing different colour felt scarves. I like the warmth and dimension that the felt adds to the wintry image.

And, with that said, I am also linking this card up to the following Challenges:

Simon Says Stamp-Winter Inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by,
