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

This is NOT the card that I had pictured in my head when I started this project!!!  UGH!!  (as in ughly!!!)  And as usual, I share with you the good, the bad and the "ughly"!  And this one is surely ugly!!!

The base of my card is a half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 2" x 4" piece of Balmy Blue Gingham Designer Series Paper (DSP).  It's from the Subtles Collection 6" x 6" paper pack. I set it in place with snail tape.

I took a half a doily and sponged the backside with Balmy Blue ink.  I added a little tape to the middle and set it in place on the edge of the DSP.  

I die cut some snowflakes and I sponged them with Balmy Blue, but only on the edges. 

I stamped the snowman from the "Snowman Season" set using Whisper White card stock and I punched him out with the matching punch.  I had left enough room on the card stock so the arms punched out too.  I colored those with the Early Espresso marker.  I also punched out another snowman and I sandwiched the arms between it.  This way the arms will be more stable and won't fall off.  If you glued them they probably wouldn't fall off either.  I colored the snowman's nose with the Pumpkin Pie marker. I added a little Powder Pink ink to the cheeks using the marker.  Before setting the snowman in place, I set him on the card to see where the words should go. 

The words are from the "Snowman Season" set. I stamped them using Night of Navy ink.

I set the snowman in place using Dimensionals.

I added the snowflakes using Dimensionals and I set a crystal rhinestone in the center of each one. I added a couple of extra rhinestones to the card.  

The tree is from the "Let it Snow" 12" x 12" DSP package.  I had fussy cut a stocking cap and a tree but ended up using the felt hat and scarf from the "Let it Snow" embellishment kit.  I just glued them in place plus a small Dimensional behind the parts that hung off the snowman. I did that just for stability.  I did add the little tree using a Dimensional. I had cut it out so, why not.  It couldn't ruin the card anymore than it already was.

And there you have it!  An interesting and horrible card!  I will have a much better card for you tomorrow. I promise!

Thank you SO much for bearing with me today,
