Snowman in the Meadow

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.

Our Christmas dies are still available in the online store. And, there is still time to get some to create this year's Christmas cards.  We have Christmas Part 1 (22 new designs), Christmas Part 2 (21 new designs) and Christmas Part 3 (11 new designs). 

Today, for your viewing pleasure I have a card featuring the new Snowman & Owl Pal die. It's one of those whimsical dies from the Christmas Part 3 collection that makes for a really cute Christmas card. I created it for a friend who lives out in Washington. They don't get much snow so I thought a snowman card would be a cute one for her. Let's get started on some details of how I created my card.

Design Steps:

My card this week started with the color challenge #821 on Splitcoaststampers. The colors were limiting but the optional item was to make a snowman. We have so many really cute snowman dies this year so I knew I was in for the challenge. Our colors were bermuda bay, silver and pumpkin pie. Neutrals are allowed in this challenge and I used black, white and a few shades of brown . 
pumpkin pie, silver, bermuda bay

I managed to find some scraps of bermuda bay designer paper to use for the snowman's jacket and the owls hat. That made things a little easier. Then I used bermuda bay cardstock for his scarf, buttons, hat band and pockets.  

For the background, I embossed with a snowflake swirl embossing folder.  I like the visual interest it gave to my card. 

I cut a snow slope and used chunky glitter on the top of the slope. Stamped my sentiment in bermuda bay ink.  

I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the embossed panel with double sided tape and the snow slope with dimensional adhesive.
Next, I added the snowman image using dimensional adhesive. I cut some silver snowflakes from an older CottageCutz die(Cocoa & Sweet Treats) for added interest on the embossed panel. 
And, that completes my card for this week. I hope you are making progress on your Christmas cards. I have my cards out in the mail. Now I am ready to bake and make some candy for gift giving. See you next Saturday.
