Rustic Snowman Christmas Card
This card features a snowman made with the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Bigz “Assembly Snowman” die (#658770). The panels behind him were cut with a die from the Spellbinders “Labels Nine” set (S4-233).
The greeting is from the Gina K “Christmas Wishes” set and was stamped with Gina K Dark Chocolate ink. I used this to ink all the edges as well. To add a little color/texture to the scarf and band on the hat, I pounced Dark Chocolate ink all over the pieces with a snowflake stamp from the Gina K Designs “Seasonal Sentiments” stamp set.
For paper and card stock, I used Gina K Kraft, Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream, Recollections corrugated kraft, a piece of brown from the Recollections “Coffee and Cream” heavy weight card stock pack, and “Wooden Fence” (#154484) by The Paper Studio.
I embossed the cream mat behind the corrugated panel with a Darice “Snowflake Swirls” embossing folder. Because the corrugated panel was cut with the largest die in the set, there was no die to create the cream mat behind it, so I cut it the same size, cut it up the middle, and offset each half on both sides of the corrugated panel.
The Modsquad Challenge this week is “Non Traditional Christmas Colors” where we are to use non traditional colors on our cards; no red, green, silver, or gold. Anything else is good. (Sadly, this site is no longer active.)
Over at the Die Cut Diva’s, the challenge this month is “Winter Time” where we are invited to share our winter-themed cards and projects. In addition to the theme, all cards/projects must be made using at least one die cut or embossing folder (using any die cut machine including Cameo and Cricut machines).
Thanks for checking out my card project!

Wow! It looks like a hand carved wood plaque one would hang on the wall. This is wonderful!
I like the rustic snowman. Cute card. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.
This rustic looking snowman is fantastic and I think you should frame it. You could not have gotten more texture on it. Love it. Thank you for sharing it with us at the Mod Squad Challenge with week. So glad that you did. Merry Christmas to you and good luck.
