Birthday snowman

Hello again! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

For my card today I am still working with snowmen, but a birthday card this time. I've had this cute image stamped for sometime and thought he deserved to find a home on a card. He is so cute-and that single snowflake! You would never see just one around here! We really got dumped on last week, so we now have a very adequate snowcover for the gardens. Hopefully the cold weather before we got all this snow didn't damage too many of my perennials. This would serve equally well as a Valentine with all the sweet candy and hearts.

This card I will enter in 'The House that Stamps Built' Designers choice challenge-Sweet Treats. I will also enter this in the 'Cards in Envy' challenge-Snowbuddy Like You'; the 'Creative Knockouts' challenge-Tag, Your it-use a tag; and the 'Seize the Birthday' challenge-coloring.

I stamped the image (Stampendous Jolly Snowman) with Versa-Mark ink and used black embossing powder and heat set (don't know which powder-I stamped that image a looooong time ago:). I colored the hat and heart with Momento markers. I cut it out with "Spellbinders Mega Rectangles and sponged SU Island Indigo ink while it was still in the die. I mounted the image on a piece of Stampin-up designer paper (?pack?). I then mounted that on the piece of the reverse of the blue heart DP-with all that yummy candy (sweet treats). I mounted that onto a piece of old olive cardstock. I stamped the sentiment (Stampendous) on a scrap of orange cardstock and cut it out with the SU small tag punch, them attached that to the snowman layer with a brad.

I like this one, do you? He looks so grateful for that snowflake, don't you think?
Please, I'd love you to leave a comment =).

  2. Cute card! I love that snowman and the background paper! Thanks for sharing with us at Cards in Envy!

  3. Yes, I like this card and I adore your snowman...I think we would love to see a single snowflake here in the Pacific Northwest... but if we got dumped on like you, we would probably have the same sentiments as you... but this is darling and it makes a darling winter birthday card! Thank you for playing along with Seize the Birthday!

    1. Thank you, Colleen! We received at least another foot of snow here over the weekend. About 3 1/2 feet on the level now. Snowbanks getting to the point of not being able to see around/over them to get out of the driveway, but I still don't mind. The trees are all covered with 'frosting' it has been soooo cold here. You have to appreciate the beauty, or it just might drive you crazy. If it gets too bad, I can just stay home and 'play with paper'! Have a great day.

  4. Yes, he is grateful for the snowflake because without it he would melt!! We would love to see snow here in the Pacific Northwest... just a little to bit a snowman and make snow angels... we don't ask for a lot!! What a cute winter birthday card, thank you for playing along with Seize the Birthday!

  5. So cute! Love the colours and colouring. Thanks for playing along with Seize the Birthday.
