Snowman Season, Christmas Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I found this adorable card here.  I did change the colors and add more snowflakes but other than that it's a copy!! I just HAD to because it's just too darn cute.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Balmy Blue. 

On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock. This piece has a rectangle cut out using the Stitched Rectangle dies.  What I like about these dies is, they have stitching on both sides of the cutting line.  The piece that came out of the center has stitched lines around the inside of it.  I saved it for a future card.

Next I cut a 4" x 4" piece of Balmy Blue gingham print from the 6" x 6" "Subtles" paper pack.  The original card was done using Petal Pink but I liked the Balmy Blue better.  

Then I stamped the snowman from the "Snowman Season" set and fussy cut it out. UGH. You KNOW how much I hate fussy cutting.  But once again, I did survive it! Without even a single paper cut!!! LOL

I cut a small piece of the white glitter paper and taped it to the bottom of the rectangle opening.  I set the snowman in place and taped him on the back with a small piece of scotch tape.  

The words are from the same "Snowman Season" stamp set using black Memento ink.

I loaded the back up with Dimensionals and I set the card front on the card base. 

I added the snowflakes from the "Snowflake" sequins.  I couldn't believe how staticky these little things are.  After huffing on my fingers and not having much luck I decided to go to the laundry room and I cut a 1/4" x 1/4" piece of dryer sheet and placed it inside the container. I shook the container a few times and viola, no more static.  I set the snowflakes in place using the glue from the "Fine Tip" glue bottle and a toothpick.  I added snowflakes to the outside of the card, which is not what was on the original card.  I just thought the outside could use something. 

This was a fun card to make (once I got the sequins under control) and I can see myself making it again in maybe Highland Heather or even the pink.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
