Frosty The Snowman

Hi everyone, this week for my DT card at Cheery Lynn Designs I am sharing with you a vintage styled Christmas card using one of our latest released Snowflake dies which comes in a set of 2.

I started by cutting out my Snowflakes in white cardstock and then sprayed Adhesive on to them and added extra fine Glitter. This way you get a lovely smooth finish that doesn't show any lumps of glue. I cut them in half and added to the corners of my first layer.

My Snowman I added Snowtex on to his body and an accent on to his hat and whilst still wet I poured some extra fine glitter over them. The embellishments were coloured with Copics and a little Distress ink at the edges for definition to the Snowman's body.

My Snowflower was glittered in the same way, layering twice and adding a Gumdrop. My Pine Branches were coloured with  Copics and Glitter added for an extra frosty look. 

Merry Christmas was heat embossed with Red Tinsel Embossing Powder.

Thanks for stopping by today.
