Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

One of the things I love about snowman images is that they are good all winter long!  This pretty in pink Victorian card would be a great winter birthday card, Valentine, or get well greeting.  I built the background of my card with paper scraps.  Then I dug into my embellishments and went to work on building the central image.  Here’s how:

  • First, heat emboss the Reneabouquet Victorian Snowflake Medallion with Stampendous Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel. Place foam tabs in the center of the medallion and adhere it to the card base.
  • Next,  brush Dies Clear Adhesive over the small snowflakes.  Then sprinkle them with fine pearl glitter glass.
  • Now, place dimensionals on the back of Victoria’s Snowman printed beautiful board and adhere on the right hand side of the medallion.
  • Next, arrange flowers (linked below) around the sides of the medallion as seen in the photo.
  • Tie a double loop bow with Pink Taffeta ribbon and tuck the knot under one of the pink roses. Then tie a double loop bow with Pink and Brown Twist Bakers Twine and adhere it over the pink taffeta bow.
  • Thread a heart charm on Pink and Brown Twist, tie a knot and use the point of your scissors to push into the knot of the Bakers Twine bow.
  • Place dimensionals on the back of  the vintage rose corner pieces and adhere.
  • Finally, tuck snowflakes in and around the flowers and images.  Top with Sweet Shop pearls.

A Peek Inside

Add an extra element of surprise to your project when you create a kinetic waterfall feature on the top half of the card.  Wrap ribbon around the back of the mechanism to hold everything neatly in place.

Then build a box pocket to hold all the goodies for a Victorian Snowman Tea Party. Wrap your goodies with leftover bits of designer paper.  Create a tag,  top it with more Pink Taffeta,  a White Satin Bow and a sweet rose charm.  Stitch paper scraps together to make a handy  little bookmark, and top this with white satin ribbon as well.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas that you’ll be able to use in your own crafty adventures.  You can find a linked supply list below this post.

Stay warm and cozy!

    I will say it over and over again. God bless your talent!!! You just have a way with scraps that I wish I could replicate, Kathy. What a stunning card!!! I love the whole set up of it and that cute little image of the snowman and little girl. I also love all of the colors and shabbiness of the card. Wow!!!! Big hugs, my sweet and talented friend!

    Another vintage delight Kathy. And another one of your ideas to add to the design stash, the ribbon around the waterfall section is a wonderful way to ‘tie in’ the ribbon on the cover and on the tag, making it all beautifully balanced.
