The One with the Friendly Snowmen Card Project with Spellbinders



Hello everyone.


Today I have a wintry card for you. It's a little bit Christmas but not really. I'm using the NEW Friendly Snowmen stamp set from Spellbinders. It is part of the Be Merry Collection to has a ton of cute Christmas stamps and dies.

Background:

I started with my usual piece of Neenah 110 lb. Solar White cardstock cut to 3 1/2 inches by 4 3/4 inches. I used the Color Block Scenic Scape Etched Dies to create a snow hill the same width as my background using the same white card stock. I then grabbed my Ranger Blender brushes to blend on some Distress Oxide inks onto my background panel. I used Distress Oxide inks in Milled Lavender and Shaded Lilac to blend on a soft purple background. I used the snow hill that I created to make sure I was adding the ink in the right place. Holding it up to the background occasionally while I blend on the ink. I popped up the snow hill onto the background panel using foam squares.


I also cut some of the snowflakes from the Holiday Decorations Die set. I used the same white cardstock as above. This die set actually makes small ornaments, it's super cute. I adhered them onto the background using liquid glue.



Images:

This adorable snow couple is from the Friendly Snowmen stamp set NEW from Spellbinders. I stamped them using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink and colored them with my Faber Castell Polychromos colored Pencils. You can refer to the Kolour Map above to see which pencils I used. I tried to make the snow couple the same pale purple as the background to make them match. I then colored their clothing using traditional red and green Christmas colors.



Sentiment:

The sentiment is from the same Friendly Snowmen stamp set. I stamped the "you melt my heart" sentiment using watermark ink and heat embossed it using detail white embossing powder. I stamped it onto Fun Stampers Journey Pretty Amethyst card stock and trimmed it down into a strip using my Fiskars cut line paper trimmer. I adhered it directly to the snow hill using liquid adhesive.



Assembly:

The entire card panel was adhered to a Spellbinders Silver Fox card base cut to size A2 and scored in a top folding portrait orientation. The panel was popped up using strips of craft foam using tear tape adhesive.


I finished up the card by adding a coordinating purple heart from from my stash.


I hope that I've inspired you to create something today. For more information on the NEW holiday collection from Spellbinders (CLICK HERE!) to visit their site.
