Jolly Snowman

Hi and welcome back for another Merry Monday challenge.  This week, Kathy has challenged us to use a snowman on our card.  Look at this adorable inspiration photo.



And here's the card I made:



I used a retired SU set called Jolly Old St Nick.  This snowman is just too adorable and after I stamped him onto some Whisper White cardstock, I lightly colored him with Copics.  The "snow banks" were cut with my new A2 curved die from SSS.  The Soft Sky panel has white-embossed snowflakes.I actually stamped the sentiment crooked so I had to add another front snow bank, which actually adds a bit of dimension to the card!  My snowman is popped up on dimensionals.

Thanks for looking.  If you haven't already, check out the inspiration from the rest of the design team.  They will amaze you, as always.

Products used:

Stamps:  Jolly Old St Nick
Ink:  Versamark, Tuxedo Memento Black
Cardstock:  Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Accessories:  Copics, A2 Curved Die (SSS)

Cheers
Karren

This little snowman does look quite jolly! This is the perfect layout and I love the black sentiment! It's nice to know that someone else stamps sentiments crooked sometimes! Great save! Hope things are going well for you.

Thank goodness for crooked stamping sometimes, right? I love the second snowbank, it's perfect! Whenever I goof I think of something a wise stamper once told me: "It's not a mistake, it's an Opportunity to Embellish" LOL! Great card Karren :)

Love your snowman Karren, he reminds me a little of the old Michelin Tyre man. So round and happy. A fun card.
