Be Merry
by Donna Sledzik


Good morning everyone! Today I have a fun Christmas card featuring this cute snowman die which is part of the new 2020 Christmas Release.


To make this card, I started by inking the word stamp with Speckled Egg Distress ink and stamped it onto watercolor paper. Next I die cut the snowman in the center of the background paper. I saved the hat, nose and scarf from the die cut to color and glue back into place on the snowman. I inked the edges of the paper with Speckled Egg Distress ink and glued this to black cardstock, leaving a border around the watercolor paper. 

Next, I colored the nose, scarf and the hat band with copic markers and glued them in place on the die cut image.  The hat band was a thin strip cut from the hat.

I used white acrylic paint to lighten up the snowman's body and spattered the paper to have it look like snow. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights to the snowman.

Once the paint was dry, I stamped the sentiment in black ink under the snowman.


Next I used the Pinpoint Snowflake craft die on a piece of watercolor paper and glued that to a black cardstock mat.  I glued a strip of red patterned paper to the left side of the snowflake background and adhered it to a white card base.

I stamped and white heat embossed the words "be merry'' on a strip of black cardstock and glued that to the card.

To finish the card, I added some white Nuvo Drops to the card front.

Well, that's it for today! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!






Such a fun mix of papers on this adorable design.
