Saturday Snowman Fun SSC230

Pin It Now! I got up early, early this morning, before the rest of the house was up.  It's the time of day I can think most clearly, I'm most relaxed and not exhausted from the day.  I know some friends who stamp into the wee hours of the morning, but not me!  I like my coffee and the sunrise to get creative. 

I took on the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge, SSC230.  Had some fun with Frosty!

I had a blast making this! 
I used the XL Scallop Square Die, and made it into a shadow box with dollar store weatherstripping foam. It's about 1/4" wide and just the right depth. Cut the square out of the middle with a craft knife.
Then was the fun part! 
I stamped frosty twice, once on a square of Pool Party, and again on Whisper White.  Colored and cut him, and pieced him onto the Pool Party image.
I used Diamond Effects on his coal buttons,
A Jingle Bell on his hat.
Nestled him on layers of silver Glimmer Paper.
Added snow to the background with a gel pen.
Threw some mica flakes in for good measure!

Here's how he looks close up.

...and the inside of the card.

Here's the sketch...

U Stamp With Dawn and Friends.  Her choice of color was wonderful!
