Be Merry Snowman
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  Today I wanted to make a Season's Greeting card instead of a Christmas card.  I changed up the colors a bit and chose a die and sentiment that could be used for various occasions.

When you cut out the All Heart Snowman die, it looks like this:


I placed a piece of white cardstock behind the large heart openings and lightly traced around the edges with a pencil:


I used the pencil marks as a guide to color the hearts with an RV02 Copic Marker and an RV55 Copic Marker.  Notice I didn't bother to stay in the lines:


I put a piece of strong double stick tape from Elizabeth Crafts behind the die cut openings and then stuck the die on top of my pink splotches:


You could still see the pencil marks since I didn't line up everything exactly, but I didn't worry about it because I knew I would be adding some glitter on top.  I also didn't worry about the small hearts because I knew I would be coloring the cut out hearts red and sticking them down onto the exposed double stick tape.  Once I colored the small hearts with an RV29 marker and the nose with a YR12 marker, I placed them onto the card.  The larger hearts still had exposed double stick tape, so I sprinkled glitter onto the sticky surfaces:


To finish the card, I added a sentiment and some die cut snowflakes.
