Snowman Magic, Penguin Place, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

This card was SO much prettier in my head than what ended up on paper! And it's a bit better in person than it is on the screen, but just a little bit!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Balmy Blue card stock for the layer. Then I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White for the focal piece.

I took the focal piece and set it on my scoring board. I turned it over so when I was done the raised bumps would be on the front. I scored the backside at 3/4" and every 1/8" up to 1-1/2".

The words are from the "Penguin Place" and were stamped using Balmy Blue ink.  I taped that piece in place on top of the Balmy Blue piece

The snowman was die cut using the die from the "Snowman Magic" bundle. I die cut two, one for the front and one for the back. I do this because I like to sandwich the arms between the layers, plus I color the face in on the back one using my Basic Black marker so when the face is die cut, the eyes and mouth are black and nice and neat looking. 

So once the snowmen were die cut, I die cut the face on the top one. I saved the nose and colored it with my Pumpkin Pie marker.  Then I stamped the buttons on the bottom part of the snowman.

I die cut and colored the arms using my Bronze Blends pen. You can also use Crumb Cake or Soft Suede Blends or markers.  I glued the arms to the second snowman. Then I glued the two snowman pieces together.

I stamped the had and scarf from the "Snowman Magic" set using Balmy Blue ink. I die cut them with the matching dies. I glued them in place. I added Dimensionals behind the snowman and set it aside.

Then I die cut the trees using glitter paper that has double-sided sticky paper behind it. I die cut 5 of them. The tree is from the same "Snowman Magic" bundle. I arranged them in a circle and set the snowman on top. 

It's different!!  LOL 

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop by and see today's "different" Christmas card,
