Tin Snowman Ornament and Card
This is the third in my series of cards with ornaments. This one has a removable, rusty tin snowman ornament.
Here is the ornament by itself:
To create the ornament, I started with “Primitive Rusty Tin Snowman Garland” that I purchased online from Factory Direct Craft.
I cut the garland apart with wire cutters (leaving some wire on both sides for the arms). Each piece of garland has 10 snowmen, so I was able to make a bunch of ornaments (and cards). I punched holes for the eyes, buttons, and hanger in each one with my We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile.
I used versamark and Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress embossing powder to create the rough finish on the hat and on the mini brads used for the eyes. The mini button brads (and brads for eyes) are both Recollections (from Michaels). Wired ribbon was used for the scarf and trim on hat.
I made another version of the ornament with raffia instead of the ribbon:
Here is the card without the ornament:
For the card, I used “Country Snowman” patterned paper by The Paper Studio (from Hobby Lobby) and some brown (unmarked) card stock from their open stock. I also used some “Rustic Cream” card stock from Papertrey Ink. All the edges were inked with Gina K Charcoal Brown ink.
The center layered pieces were cut with dies from the Gina K Designs Fabulous Label die set. A Stripe Background embossing folder and a Snowflake Swirls embossing folder (both by Darice) were used to add texture to these panels. The greeting is from the “Peace and Joy” stamp set from Gina K Designs.
Behind the greeting panel in the center is a small, strong magnet which allows the metal snowman to easily attach and detach. This panel was popped up with foam tape to accommodate the thickness of the magnet.
Thanks for checking out my card project.
