Snowmen

Card Front

Card open
I'm blogging this a day late. I wanted to wait until it was a little brighter to photograph the open card. Then my daughter decided that we needed a nice lunch without children, so she took me to Red Lobster (It's lobsterfest!). I think that's a wonderful reason for being late.

My card is the result of several challenges and a fantastic bargain on the Sizzix pop-up house die. At Kraft Journal the challenge is white on kraft. Critter Sketch wants to see snowflakes. Tuesday Throwdown has a monochromatic challenge. City Crafters has the theme all that glitters.

The card base and house is cut from kraft paper. The roof was painted with picket fence distress paint and the icicles were made with Viva Decor ice white paint. The snowflake edges of the inside and bottom of the card front were cut using Tim Holtz's on the edge snowflakes die. The snowman is also a Tim Holtz die. The snowflakes were cut using Cheery Lynn dies. All of the snow pieces were covered with picket fence stickles so they all glitter a lot.

It was a fun card to make and quite appropriate since we had the biggest snowfall of the year here in Chicago last night.
