We were challenged to create a card using one of Faith's "Project 100 Snowmen" images...this was such a fun theme since I happen to love snowmen! For my card today I have used the adorable "Snowman Valentine". The image is colored with pencils and I've layered it with die cuts and foam tape to create a shaker card. (Note to self: It's a good idea to look up a tutorial instead of "winging it" when trying a new technique! LOL I had paper and dies all over the place...next time I try one of these it will go much quicker!) The beads are from SU!...I have had them in my stash for years and never used them...I'm really glad I found them; surprisingly they were right where I thought they were! LOL I had planned to embellish with hearts, but I went with snowflakes and Swarovski flatback crystals. The "snowy" paper and snowflakes are reminiscent of the blizzard we had earlier this week! The sketch I used is from Die Cuttin' Divas. Here are some detail close-ups:
Paper: G.P. 110 CS, SU! Baja Breeze CS, PTI Pure Poppy CS, Lawn Fawn Patterned Papers, The Paper Studio Glitter CS, PTI Acetate
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals in "Light Siam", SU! Beads
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities and Snowflake Die, Lawn Fawn Snowflake Dies, Foam Tape
