Three holiday releases meet up tonight -  Plush Sheldon, Delicate Stitched Snowflakes and the brand-new Dancing Snowflake Oval.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here - loving how compatible the Memory Box dies are!  Sheldon - from 2015 - gets the cutest face ever -  his carrot nose is a tiny piece cut from the center of the largest Delicate Stitched Snowflake.  Multi-tasking once again - see that little piece in the top snowflake below?

Cut Sheldon from watercolor paper and stitch him.  Attach Scor-Tape behind black cardstock and cut the hat, eyes and buttons - they'll be self-adhesive when you need them.  Cut the branches from kraft cardstock.  Attach Scor-Tape behind a scrap of orange cardstock and cut the center of the largest snowflake.

Cut the two scarf pieces from mint felt.  Trim the ends of the short strip and lay it vertically over him.  Wrap the longer strip snugly around his neck and tape the ends behind him.  Trim the ends of the other strip, and secure it with strip of Scor-Tape.  The card may require extra postage - but I think the plush, layered felt scarf adds a bit of dimension and winter warmth.  Attach the nose, eyes, button and arms.  

Cut Dancing Snowflake Oval from watercolor paper - leave it in the die.  Dry-emboss it using the embossing mat and plates required for your machine.  

Cut three Delicate Stitched Snowflakes from silver glitter cardstock.

Attach everything to a Pool Notecard.  Sheldon looks like he's attached with foamtape, but he's not.  There's already a lot going on behind the scenes  -  the arms and ends of the scarf give him a great little boost from behind.
