Tim Holtz - Assembly Snowman - Square Christmas Card...


I absolutely love snow, but where we live in sunny Northern Australia, sad to say, there is no such thing!  Anyhow, while dreaming of holidays in the snow, I have created this card to share with you...

How cute is Tim's Snowman???  Especially when he is featured on this fantastic paper from My Mind's Eye!  

This was a fun part!!!  Using left-over scrap pieces to create the snowman...

Next, time to get messy!!  Using a scraper (or an old credit card) and your chosen stencil, apply a layer of white gesso to the paper.  Lightly sprinkle glitter onto the wet gesso.

After gesso is dry, adhere your layers together, add ribbon and brads, I also hung 3 snowflake charms, starting at the ribbon to give the illusion of falling snowflakes.

Add distress stickles picket fence to your snowman and the project is finished. 

 Don't forget to line your card for that professional look.

Hehe... it looks like the snowman is catching a snowflake!! 
Wish I was catching one right about now!
