This has been a week for stories!! First an adventure to get to Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference in Orlando through/around a blizzard, then more snow this week!! This is a picture of the front of our house from the road. Note the icicles? My daughter, Lyndsey, noticed that they're only on one side of the street! Interesting!!
To make your card, start by embossing the Soft Sky c/s with the Northern Flurry embossing folder (TIEF). Once you've don that, use a variety of round and shaped punches -- start from the bottom with the largest Circle punch (1 3/4"), and overlap/gradually work your way up. The hat is the 1" square punch. Once you've punched the square out, you can add a brim by tilting your bird punch leaf stem just right. My advice to you is to make yourself a template once you've got your snowman shaped the way you want him! The buttons are the Basic Jewel Rhinestones -- attach the Soft Sky layer to a Whisper White card base and attach the rhinestones to the Whisper White base.
That's it! Come back tomorrow to enjoy another card that I created with punches!
