Hello - how has everyone been?!? Here we are in winter - snow everywhere!! Well, I'm down here in the basement crafting - using the new Close To My Heart November Stamp of the Month - All Decked Out. I worked with the Sketch Challenge today from Splitcoaststampers - the challenge is a great spot to get a jump start on your creativity.
The card measures 5 X 7 when folded. I used two different Cuttlebug Embossing Folders to add a little dimension to the background. The head and middle of the snow man were stamped on a separate sheet of cardstock - cut out and used as a mask when stamping the completed snowman.
The entire snowman was cut out after stamping it and popped up with 3D Dimensional Squares from Close to my Heart.
