Embossed Snowman – Original Post

Embossed Snowman DSCN6057.jpg

The snowman on this card was made with the Sizzix Snowman & Hat Bigz die which also came with a bonus embossing folder that fits the die.    The snowman was cut from Gina K Pure Ivory card stock, and the hat was cut from a scrap of textured black DCWV card stock.  The arms were cut freehand from a scrap of black.  Ribbon and gems were added to finish him off.

The background panel is Gina K Kraft card stock embossed with the Darice Snowflake Swirl folder.  The frame was cut using my trimmer from a piece of Pebbles “Mary” card stock from the Walnut Grove collection.  The Card base is Gina K Pure Ivory.

The greeting stamp is from the Gina K Designs “Winter Cheer” set and was stamped with versamark and heat embossed with gina k black embossing powder on kraft card stock and matted on pure ivory.  A scrap of ribbon, jute and a glittered, wooden mini snowflake ornament from Michaels were added to the greeting banner.

In later versions of this card, I used metal snowflakes instead of the wooden ones because I ran out of them.  I also changed the greeting using a stamp from the Hampton Arts “Outlines – Season’s Greetings” stamp set.

This card was made for the Perfectly Rustics Challenge No. 36 – Embossing – where we are to use wet or dry embossing on our project. I used both.  (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2014/11/17/prdc-36-embossing/)
