Frosty held to ransom!

Here's my DT card for the challenge at Die Cut Dreams this week. Our theme is Winter Wonderland and there are some fab Christmas embellies for the prize.



I used some new snowmen stamps from The Greetings Farm for this card. I followed the sketch from Sophisticat but I think I may be too late to enter. I flipped the sketch and used the snowmen to represent the circles. Doodle Palace wanted to see a celebration that wasn't a Birthday, Saturday Spotlight want us to create a scene and The Greetings Farm say no frills!



I stamped the middle snowman first and then stamped him again on a post it note to mask him out and stamp the other two over the top to huddle them together. They're shaded with ProMarkers and oodles of Glamour Dust to make them frosty. I created the scene using torn papers from Doodlebug and printed the sentimet on the PC.

I wish I had a better photo of the inside - it reads 'or Frosty gets it'. Again I printed the sentiment on the PC, the border came as a gift from Tracy at Dies to Die For and the scalloped mat is one of those dies I keep using!

I stamped the middle snowman again, and cut out just his head then drew a puddle around him. Cruel eh?



I think I will be making some more humorous Christmas cards this year as I really enjoyed making this one. Hope you can join us at Die Cut Dreams this week.
