Snowman's Warmest Wishes
by Rachel Duong
Hi It's Rachel here with a sparkly Poppystamps "Sweet Nordic Snowman" sending the warmest of wishes to you. This glittery cutie is just a sampling from the abundant, amazing Christmas release at Poppystamps --- available now!
To create this card I die cut the snowman's hat, scarf and top from the gorgeous Memory Box "Poinsettia Garland" double sided floral papers. Next comes glitter paper for the base of the "Arched Gothic Cathedral Window". (The paper packs are listed below.)
I die cut the top piece of the arch in pearl paper and glued the pieces together. A thin layer of vellum over icy blue paper is the backdrop for the window. I added the layer of vellum to give it a softer effect.
The "Christmas Banners" stamp and die set is full of festive greetings and I chose "Warmest Wishes" because I thought it was a play on words, being that this snowman is inside a house, not outside!
This brings us to the background. I decided to use patterned paper for the background. It actually becomes pretty wallpaper adorning the room. So how does the snowman stop from melting inside?! I will leave that to your imagination! Then I adhered the card front to a white card base leaving a fine border. Finally I embellished the window with "Autumn Fairy Jewels" .
Thank you for taking time to stop in. I hope you love this wintery card as much as I do! It's light and airy, floral vibe says snow might be just around the corner. The Poppystamps Christmas release is absolutely wonderful. I can't say enough about it! Until next time, have a fantastic day!
