I LOVE snowmen - my husband and I collect snowmen and every holiday season we look for new snowmen to decorate with. I can't wait to start looking for snowmen - especially when we get to our new home. In the meantime, I have created this card using one of my Sugar Nellie images. The challenge for week 25 on the Paper Craft Planet All Things Sugar Nellie (wow that is a mouthful) forum is to use Snowflakes, anyhow, anyway. I also chose to combine this challenge with the one for Day 228 on the 365 Card Blog The challenge there is to use two specific techniques: Sanding and Sponging. So, I looked through my CB folders and found the snowflake one and embossed the black Core'dination paper. The back of the paper is a pretty light blue. I SANDED the paper to bring the blue to the surface. I then SPONGED the sanded embossed snowflakes just slightly. I colored my snowman with Prisma Color pencils and then cut him using one my nestibilities die. I sponged around the edges of this and then matted it. I pulled out a few of these wonderful snowflakes that I had cut on my big shot and sponged a bit, My sentiment has some snowflakes sponged in the background. All in all the card went together VERY quickly and it is another one to add to my stash of cards to send to the troops.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my Winter-y snowman.
