Frosty the Snowman

I made this card for the Merry Monday 'Snowmen' challenge.  I'm also entering A Gem of a Challenge 'Your Favourite Colour Combo' (I love blue and silver for Christmas cards), Christmas with the Cuties 'Christmas Carols and Songs' (I've chosen Frosty the Snowman - which I now can't stop singing!), ABC Christmas Challenges 'D for Dimension', Allsorts 'Anything Goes' challenge, Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes' and Season's Greetings 'Anything Goes'.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'The Perfect Snowman' pre coloured Mini Masterpiece
Die: Cheery Lynn 'Snowflake Set 2'
Card: Silver mirri
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Frosty Christmas'
Other: Diamond Stickles, Wink of Stella, Papermania Shimmering Dots

I trimmed the dark blue snowflake paper, layered it onto silver mirri and attached it to the card front.  I cut a strip of light blue snowflake paper, layered it onto silver mirri and attached it across the card lining up the snowflakes so the pattern matched. The pre-coloured image was trimmed slightly, layered onto silver mirri and attached to the centre with foam tape.  I die cut a snowflake and attached it to the top corner, adding a shimmering dot to the centre.  To finish I highlighted the image with a Wink of Stella and the snow with Diamond Stickles.
