Isn’t this slimline snowman card so fun? We love that Annie has combined the clean lines of the square frame die with the gently curving hills and the crisp outlines of the snowmen with that dreamy wintry background – can’t you just almost smell the snow?
Let’s take a look at how Annie created this card for us. First, she stamped the tree from Wintery Friends Stamp Set across a 3″ X 8″ panel of white card stock using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. PRO TIP: vary the height and spacing of your stamping of repeated background images to create enough variety to keep the eye moving.
Then she blended Rose Ink up from the bottom and Sky Ink down from the top of the panel to create that frosty pale winter sky.
To create her frame, Annie cut silver glitter card stock with the Slimline OPC Squares Die and used the curvy die from the Slimline Waves die set to create a snowbank from white glitter card stock.
Now she stamped her snowmen and gift from our new Snowmen With Presents stamp set onto white card stock using black Copic-friendly ink, colored them in with her Copics and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
Then she assembled her card by adding her background to a layer of blue shimmer paper and adhered it to her card base. She added the snowbank to the bottom edge with flat adhesive and put her silver frame over the whole thing with dimensional adhesive.
For her sentiment, Annie used the one from the Christmas Inchies Stamp Set using Azure Ink and cut it out with one of the windows in the Slimline Inside Ovals With Holes Die. Way to think outside the box, Annie! She added that and her colored elements all with foam tape for lots of dimension and depth.
Brrrrrr – we can FEEL the chill! Here are the items you will want to pull out or add to your cart to make your own versions of this snowman card:
