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

I am SO loving the "Snowman Season" stamp set.  I LOVE playing with each of the characters in the set.  And I also bought the Designer Series Paper (DSP) that compliments it.  And the hats on one of the sheets and a snowman on the other can be punched out using the matching punch.  How fun is that?  And quick and easy too!!!  I found this card here but there were no instructions or a link going anywhere.  So I went by what I thought was used here.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Coastal Banana card stock.  I stamped the snowflakes image from the "Snowman Season" set using Coastal Cabana ink. I only stamped around the edges since most of the card base will be covered.

I took a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of the "Let it Snow" DSP with the trees on it.  I taped that onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Shaded Spruce card stock.  I taped those two layers to the card base.

I stamped the snowman on some Whisper White card stock and I die cut it using the 4th largest "Stitched Rectangle" dies.  I was hoping that the image would have fit in a piece that I had from the card I made on Thursday but I needed a larger one.  

After die cutting, I stamped the words from the same "Snowman Season" set, using black Memento ink. 

I colored the snowman image using the Coastal Cabana marker and a Blender Pen. I am hoping that there will be a Coastal Cabana Blends pen someday! I colored the scarf and hat using the dark Flirty Flamingo Blends Pen. I colored the nose in using the light Pumpkin Pie Blends pen.  

I set the panel in place using Dimensionals.  I kind of wished I would have added a Shaded Spruce layer behind it.  I think it would have helped it stand out more.  After setting the image in place, I added some colored pearls to it. I colored the pearls with the dark Blends Pen.  And once they were in place, I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and the card was done.

This was a very fun and easy card to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
