Stampin' Up! Spirited Snowmen

Stampin' Up! Spirted Snowmen for Freshly Made Sketches 353

It's a sketch challenge this week over at Freshly Made Sketches. When I first saw this sketch my mind went blank. I have never designed a square card, however, after staring at it for a few minutes I began to see a snow drift.

I had recently designed a card for my Christmas stamp camp and I thought it would look great as a square and with a few enchantments. 

I love the Spirted snowmen stamp set. It has 2 very different snowmen and this sweet little couple. I started by making all the elements that would have snow on them so they could dry while I worked on the rest of the card.

 I cut out two different trees using the In the Woods Framelits dies that coordinate with the Winter Woods from Mossy Meadow cardstock and a snow hill from some Whisper White using a die from the same set For the snow, I used the shimmery white embossing paste. I dabbed it on to both layers of my tree and the edge of my snowy hill

I used the new Corrugated Embossing folder on a piece of crumb cake cardstock. I daubed ink on the edges to give it an aged looked

I stamped a piece of crumb cake cardstock with the Buffalo Check stamp using Merry Merlot and I distressed the edge of the paper and daubed it with a bit of crumb cake ink.

I used the Stampin'' Blends alcohol ink markers to color my snow couple and then I used a heavy coat of Wink of Stella to make them glisten like freshly fallen snow.

I assemble the card with tear and tape and dimensionals.

I made the card as a square and a rectangle but I enhanced the square card. Can you see the differences? Share what you think in the comments
