Twinkles, the Blue Snowman

Hi folks! It's Holly posting today!

I am slowly working on my Christmas card stash.  I've got a cute Christmas card to share with you today, and I hope y'all like it!

Isn't that a cute snowman??  I stamped this Twinkles snowman, (Impression Obsession), onto white cardstock and colored him with Copic markers.  I cut him out with the 2" x 3" rectangle die from the new Blueprints 6 die set and then I set him aside while I worked on the rest of my card.

My card base is an A2 sized card using medium blue cardstock.  I used the largest rectangle die from the Blueprints 6 to cut a white background layer, as well as a blue snowflake background layer.

The blue snowflake paper is from the new Graphic 45 6x6 paper pad called 12 Days of Christmas.  It's GORGEOUS! I love the colors and the patterns in this new paper pad.

I cut about an inch and a half off the bottom of the blue snowflake background layer and glued it directly to the white one.  I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments stamp set (Impression Obsession), with black ink onto the white background layer and let it dry.

There is a solid dark blue paper in the 12 Days of Christmas paper pad, and I pulled that out and cut the pretty dotted scallop border using the Blueprints 6 from the dark blue paper.  I glued that to my background papers directly above the stamped sentiment.

The colored snowman piece was glued to my background right above the dotted scallops and then I wrapped some blue seam binding around my background and tied it in a knot.

I used the dark blue paper and cut it with the fun little rounded tag from the Blueprints 6 and glued it onto the side of my snowman piece.

The button was die cut from white cardstock using the coordinating button die in the Blueprints 6.  I glued the die cut button down on the rounded tab piece.  With all my pieces in place, this background piece was glued down to my card base.

I love this card.  The snowman, the blue papers, the fun die cuts, and the sentiment all work perfectly together.  I love how all these different die shapes from the new Blueprints 6 work so well together.  I'm having a lot of fun playing with them!

Such a cute card! Thanks Holly!!
