Stitched Snowman

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 
We have a new release of dies over at the online store. Our Autumn 2018 dies are here with 10 new designs. They are currently 25% off for a limited time.

Today's card is from the Christmas Release Part 3. There are 14 new designs in this release and any of them would be so perfect for your Christmas card making. I used the Stitched Snowman die to create a Christmas card. So let's get started with some details on my card.
Step 1: I wanted to make a card that would be easy to recreate for multiple cards. With that in mind, I kept the layout relatively simple and not as many layers as I like to use. I also wanted traditional Christmas red and green. I chose my patterned paper with these colors in mind. 

red card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
patterned paper layer: 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
green stitched oval: used the 2nd largest die from the stitched oval set.
white oval: used the 2nd largest die from the oval set

Step 2: In keeping with my traditional colors, I used green cardstock for the snowman's ear muffs and gloves and red for the heart. Sponged a bit of soft blue around the snowman and snowbank.
I wanted the sentiment on the image panel so I stamped it with the help of my MISTI.
Then I used a snowfall embossing folder to add some background snow.
Step 3: Now that all my elements are ready, I started card assembly. I decided I wanted to add some ribbon to my card. I like using it on Christmas cards. But you could certainly skip this step to make mailing easier.
Attached my snowman image to the oval panels using dimensional adhesive. The slight lift off the background creates nice depth.

Attached this image panel to the card base. Again I used dimensional adhesive. My intent was to add a bow but I didn't like the look of a bow with this particular ribbon.
To finish off my card I added a few sequins. This was just for more of a festive look. Well that's my card for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for a way to use this super cute Stitched Snowman die. See you next Saturday.
Next week the DT will be showcasing the exclusive Dakota the Husky die in our posts. So hope you will come back and take a look at the different ways to use this new die.
