Plush Bundled Snowman and the Season to Sparkle
by Jean Okimoto

P1280837'Tis the season to sparkle with a Plush Bundled Snowman from our Winter 2015 Collection.   Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating today!  Jean Okimoto here...if you're not cooking, grab a plate of cookies or chocolates (or both!) and a warm drink and make a card with me.

P1280856I've seen some beautiful handstitched Plush Bundled Snowman projects - but we're taking it easy today, and just diecutting and glittering.  Anne Thompson's great no-sew Plush Dies post was my inspiration.


Cut the snowman from white cardstock.  Cut several strips from Scor-Tape sheets - make them about ¼" x 2".  Snip about ½ way thru the strips so they'll be flexible enough to attach along the edges of the snowman.  Attach the strips along the edges - snipped sides along the outer edges.

Cut one 3-½" and two  1-½" Studio Circle Layers from white cardstock and attach them behind the snowman to cover the holes.  Brush iridescent glitter onto the adhesive in the holes on the front of the snowman.  It's hard to see here, but the glitter outlines the snowman with a soft sparkle.  I love the Impress Sparkle Glitter - there's a lot of it, consistent with my Costco mentality of buying an eternal supply of anything pretty.  

Cut the hat from glossy black cardstock.  Trace around it on black cardstock.  Handcut it slightly smaller than the hat and attach it behind the hat, covering the holes.

Punch the eyes and back them with a scrap of black cardstock.  Attach adhesive label paper to orange felt and diecut the nose.  The paper stabilizes the felt and keeps any glue from soaking through.  Cut the scarf from red glittered craft foam and trim the pieces to make room for the snowflake and greeting.    Cut the Distressed Snowdrift Collage design from silver glittered craft foam.

Stamp Season to Sparkle on green cardstock with Memento Luxe Espresso Truffle and emboss it with detail clear powder.  It's a great color when black is too dark and brown is too...brown.

Attach the pieces to an A6 card (4-⅝" x 6-¼") of gray cardstock - attach the hat and greeting with foam dots.   Just to be safe - ask your favorite post office employee if extra postage is required because of the thickness.


Thanks for stopping by - enjoy the rest of the week - hope you have the day off tomorrow.
