Even though this was originally created as a Christmas card, we just had to share this adorable snowman card idea because it’s just SO clever! We can totally see this design concept used with loads of our other characters and critters!
Our Associate Designer, Julie Warner, created this card by stamping, coloring and die cutting the little snowman with all his details for the reflection. Then she covered the buttons, pocket and his face with masking tape on the stamp, stamped again and then colored him in without all those details for his back. SUPER clever, right?
Can you see this with our Wintery Friends? Or maybe some of our incredibly popular African American beauties? Or, heavens, what about with our GNOMES??? Oh no, we might have to go stamp now!
Julie created her mirror using an oval of mirror card stock – high shine silver works, too! – and framed it with a die cut red glitter frame. She positioned her snowman offset at angles that add that realistic reflection position and added him with some foam tape for a lovely shadow.
