Let It Snow!

Not really! I'm not ready for snow yet. ;)

But I made a snowman card for Barb's Snow'y card swap.


Here he is:




Barb required the use of glitter on our cards... and I can NOT do glitter. It sticks everywhere except on the card. UGH! So I chose to use a strip of that red double-sided sticky tape. Ran it down the side of my card (inside, actually) and then sprinkled glitter on it. I think it's holding. YAY!

I trimmed away a small bit of the card front so the glitter could show from the front, too. Aren't I smart? LOL!

I used Copic markers to draw (freehand) the face on the snowman. And I used square punches and then rounded the corners for the snowmans body.


Here's the inside of my card:




Sentiment: Let It Snow (vendor unknown)
Ink: Tsukinek Brilliance Mediterranean Blue and Copic markers
Cardstock: Paper Company Black and Staples 110 # White
Designer Paper: Colorbok Blue Frost and Paper Studio Four Seasons Paper Pack
Embellishments: Offray Crochet Thread, Stampin' UP! Glitter and Soft Sky Stitched Ribbon, and a snowflake brad and button from unknown vendors

What a great snowy card, and YAY for the glitter strip!! I'm going to try that also! Love the color scheme. Ummm, is it just me or does he look like marshmallows? I sense another take on this technique...! Hugs!
