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

I found this card while surfing the net and thought it was SO darn cute that I just had to make one!  I found the original card here

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Crumb Cake card stock.  On top that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Real Red card stock.  

The focal piece is cut 3-3/4" x 5". I sponged on some Pool Party ink about 2/3 the way down.

I stamped the images and fussy cut the middle and last one.  The snowman on the right has a matching punch, so I punched out his pieces.  And looking at him, I forgot to add the Early Espresso arms.  Those are on the punch too.  How could I have forgotten his arms?  I will be adding them after I finish up my post.  The original card has arms!!  She was more caring about her beloved snowman!  LOL

After the fussy cutting and punching, I took my light Pool Party Blends Pen and colored some shadowing on the snowballs.  I colored the noses using the dark Pumpkin Pie Blends Pen.  The Scarf was colored in using the light Real Red Blends Pen and the berries in the hat were colored with that same pen.  The band in the hat was colored using the dark Daffodil Delight pen and so was the stripes in the scarf.  I added a little Petal Pink to the cheeks and I colored the hat in with Basic Black.  I think that covers all the colors.

I cut a 1" wide strip of the Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper and I set it on top of the sponged piece and lightly drew a pencil line so I knew where to stamp the snow people.  After stamping them I trimmed the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter paper.  On the right I cut it so more of the tree base would show and on the left I cut it so it looked like it was sloping a bit.  Then I taped it to the bottom of the Whisper White piece.

Once the glitter paper was taped down I stamped the words at the top from the same "Snowman Season" stamp set and black Memento ink.  Then I added Dimensionals to the backs of all of the pieces and set them in place on the card.  And the card was done!

I had fun making this card and I love how the Pool Party sponged background looks.  SO wintry! Not that I'm rushing winter, I'm not, it just looks pretty!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
