Let's Build A Snowman

Hey everyone, hope you're enjoying the long weekend.

Here's one of those cards that refused to photograph well.
I must have taken 50 snaps of it, in 3 different rooms of the house- and it's still not good.
IRL the green is more this colour and the snowman is very sparkly!!

I started my card by following the sketch over at LIM, but ended up making a few changes along the way.
First of all, I stamped my background onto a rectangular card panel.
My snowman was stamped in white and then embossed with glitter, before being die-cut and attached with foam pads.
The rectangle didn't quite look right, so before I attached my snowman, I used a large oval die to round off one edge.
This meant that the sentiment wouldn't work on the left, so I stamped it in the centre of my base card.
