Size the Snowmies image 5"x3-3/8" on one half your sheet. Print.
Color as desired. I chose to use COPIC® markers.
The list of colors are listed above. I hope the list is helpful.
I hope this is helpful. Aren't they a cute bunch of Snowmies?
Using an X-acto® knife cut around the two outer feet as shown. Slip the next largest Vintage Torn Edge nesting die under the feet and arrange. Run through the Big Shot®.
At the tip of the hat poke a small hole. Push a Jingle brad through the hole and open wings on the backside. Using Dimensional® glue, glue gold bow at base of Jingle Brad.
Using Dimensional® Glue, glue one of the Pom Poms to the ball of middle Snowmie's hat.
Trim about 1/3 of the second Pom Pom off with scissors and adhere to the end Snowmie's hat with the trimmed edge showing. Let Dry.
Center and adhere the 6-3/4"x4-3/4" Paper Studio® - Happy Holidays Pad - Trees to the 7"x5" Craftsmart® Green Cardstock Rectangle.
Using the largest Vintage Torn Edge Nesting Die and the 2nd 7"x5" Craftsmart® Green Cardstock Rectangle run through the Big Shot®.
Center Snowmies Image on the green oval and adhere.
Center the ovals on the Paper Studio® - Happy Holidays Pad - Trees and adhere.
Apply Nuvo® Crystal Drops - Ripened Pumpkin drops on each Snowmie's Nose and pull to a point using a pin. Let DRY.
Using COPIC® "B00" I colored around the upper half of the oval using a flicking motion.
At this point my need for Bling kicked in...
In my stash I dug out some tiny Iridescent Sequin Snowflakes, a few Rhinestone Snowflakes, White Flocking and White Acrylic Faux Snowflakes.
I randomly adhered some of the Rhinestone Snowflakes and Tiny Iridescent Sequins around the Snowmies. Using Dimensional® Glue I adhered White Flocking to the Snowmie's Cuffs and middle Snowmie's hat brim. as shown. I adhered some White Acrylic Faux Snowflakes along the bottom of the oval around the Snowmies as fluffy snow they are sitting on.
Lastly, OPTIONAL - I applied a couple of scraps and a name plaque on the backside of the card.
It is my so called "Cherry on the top" to my cards.
