Masked Snowman

Hello, Crafty Peeps!

Here's another card for the Christmas stash.


I stamped and heat embossed the snowman and masked him to stamp the trees.

After coloring him with markers, I sprinkled some Chunky White Embossing Enamel
over the piece and heat set from the back.
(I have a hard time getting this stuff sprinkled evenly.
I seem to always end up with a glob of it somewhere and
actually scraped some off with my fingernail.)
And you'll notice that the snow hasn't fallen to the snowman's boots yet either.
I guess it's just started snowing!

Merry Monday

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Adorable scene you've created Bonnie. The chunky EP adds a lot of texture and fun ... I always forget to use it. :) xx

Great use of one of my favourite snowmen! Love the way you masked him to get the trees behind and added the chunky white ep!

Love how you did the falling snow, and the position of the cardinal on the snowball is so funny! Looks like he's rolling on the ball. Great job on the coloring, too! :) ~ Andrea

I love silly, wonky snowman and the way you used this one is awesome! You embossed him and masked and have no ghosting around your image! Love that! I also love that chunky enamel and would not have noticed if the snow touched the ground or not but combined with that Kars folder, I think you have a winner here!

Congrats on your win, Bonnie. I don't know how I missed this card, unless it's in those emails I haven't gotten to yet. This is such a darling snowman. No wonder he's a winner.
