I'm happy with how this one turned out. This is another project inspired by a Falliday Fest challenge. I wanted to punch circles out of a patterned paper to create a snowman shape. I used a 2" Circle for the bottom and a 1-3/4" Circle for the center and head. The fun houndstooth pattern comes from the Polar Pals collection from Doodlebug Designs. I played with adding other colours from that collection, but finally decided I liked the monochromatic look the best and stuck to blues and white. I went for a tall narrow card measuring 3-1/4" x 6-1/2" and found the perfect sentiment to fit in the empty space in the retired Christmas Messages stamp set. I embossed it in Navy powder to make it stand out more. Silver sequins and snowflakes sequins were added to the card and I made my own hat for the snowman out of Night of Navy cardstock scraps. The scarf was added using the Silver Glitter ribbon from the current Holidays Catalogue. A piece of Shimmnery White cardstock was used underneath the punched patterned paper for the snowman, and the subtle shimmer adds a really nice touch to the overall design.
