Challenge # 194 We Love Snowmen at FCCB

Hi! everyone. I love snowmen but where I live this card is the closest I will come to making a snowman. I made my snowman traditional, with a top hat and buttons as well as a carrot for his nose and coal (black pearls) for his eyes.  I cut my snowman from Doodlecharms at 3".

The paper I used is Recollections Holly Day Wishes 6x6 pad and Kraft paper for the base. I cut the first layer of the snowman  in Kraft so his arms would look like branches. The second layer is cut from white card stock and I glittered it using Martha Stewart glitter.  Before I put the layers together I attached the little blue button brads. For his scarf I tied a piece of red gingham ribbon around his neck and frayed the edges.  The hat is cut from Paper Doll Dress Up. I used black Glossy Accents for the band and adhered a tiny snowflake. I added a small blue gemstone for some bling. I think all the additions really spruced him up otherwise he was pretty boring. 

The banner is made using a Christmas stamp set from Cosmo Cricket. I stamped it on white cardstock and then colored it with markers. I cut each of the flags out and glued them to a piece of twine and attached with brads. The Let it Snow tag is from the paper collection. I attached it with another red brad.

This week our sponsor is Jaded Blossom. They will be giving away a stamp set to our lucky winner so make a snowman and link up to our chaleenge at FCCB.

Hope my snowman has inspired you as well as the DT snowmen.  There are a lot of variety using different cartridges and snowmen cuts. So check out our blog.

Bye, Bye for Now
