Sugar Snowman

Hello Cottage Cutz fans!  It's Jeanne posting today - just one day before a three day weekend!  YAY!  My card today features a sweet new die from the 2018 Christmas release - which is on sale now for the Labor Day weekend.
This sentiment and die is terrific for the baker in your life.  (And that baker may even be you.)  The card was super simple to put together so if you need to make multiples, this die is perfect.
I wanted the snowman to look like he was made of sugar so I cut him from some Dazzling Diamonds glitter card stock.  I used a marker to add his eyes and mouth.
Next I cut most of the pieces from white card stock and the measuring cup from a piece of brushed metallic card stock.
I colored the white pieces using markers.
The sentiment is cut from red card stock that has an adhesive backing added, making it easy to adhere to the card.
I wanted a little interest behind my snowman so I stenciled a background.  I started with red hearts but ultimately decided upon the Crumb Cake hearts.  The red ones were just too bold.
I then assembled all the pieces.  I used a strip of patterned paper 1 1/8" on the right side and used two solid strips each 1/8" wide on the top and bottom.
I adhered it all to an A2 card base.  I hope you enjoyed my little "sugar-man" today.  He was fun and easy to make!

Don't forget - there is a labor day sale on the website this weekend with 25% off the new Christmas release and up to 60% off other select dies !


Thanks for stopping by - I hope you have a fun, relaxing and creative weekend!
