Thumpety, thump, thump...look at Frosty go!

After the weather we have had here in the northeast...wind, rain, sleet, and snow, inspiration for making a snowman card came easy. And, what a happy little snowman he is!

The Sizzix Snowman Framelits and matching Hero Arts Snowman Stamps are a great pairing for precise stamping and cutting on your project.  The 6 die set can also be used for stenciling or cutting windows in cards like the one shown below.

I used the snowman die to cut a window in the card front.  The stamped outline of the snowman along with his face are on the inside of the card.  The hat, scarf, arms, and holly were stamped on scraps of paper and cut out using the matching die.  Pearls and jewels were used for the holly berries and eyes "made out of coal". A few pop dots for dimension and a little glitter to jazz Mr. Snowman up and he is ready to go.
