Let it Snow,Let it Snow Embellishment Kit, Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog, Christmas Card

While surfing the net I found this fun card here.  I don't care for that type of opening so I changed it a bit.  

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.  Instead of cutting the front of the card in half, I just left it solid.

I added a 2" x 5-1/4" strip of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Let it Snow" 12" x 12" paper pack.  I taped the piece in place on the left side of the card.  

I stamped three sets of Real Red snowflakes on the left side.  They are from the "Let it Snow" stamp set.  The words are from that set to and I stamped them on the bottom right using Real Red ink too.

I stamped the snowman on a piece of Whisper White card stock and die cut him using the largest Stitched Circle die.  I die cut a Shaded Spruce Scalloped Oval using the largest oval die in the set. 

I colored the snowman in using the dark Real Red and Shaded Spruce Blends Pens.  I also colored the mounds of dirt using the Dark Crumb Cake Blends Pen.  The cheeks were colored using the dark Powder Pink Blends Pen and the nose was colored using the Dark Pumpkin Pie Blends Pen.  

I taped the two layers together and set them in place using Dimenisonals.  

And for the final touch, I added some snowballs from the "Let it Snow" embellishment kit. At first I thought these were styrofoam beads but they are actually felt balls.  They glue on so nicely and they look SO cute on here.  The bag doesn't look like you get many, but in fact there's a lot of them in that over-sized bag!!   Oh and I used two of the small black coal buttons from the kit too.  They just look like black dots here but in real life they have a shine to them.  That kit is SO fun. There's felt scarves, mittens and hats in the kit too. I can't wait to play with them.  Maybe tomorrow or the next day!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
