Little Bundled Snowman Scene
by Anne Thompson

Today's challenge for me in assembling this card was keeping track of all the little pieces for the LITTLE BUNDLED SNOWMAN 94678.  I really need to clear off my work surface before beginning a new project each time!  I missed one snowman layer (which I didn't realize until I looked closely at the picture on the envelope after I had the card together) and I substituted a pearl for the tiny pompom on his cap as both pieces went AWOL.

To make this card I started with a blank white A2 notecard and covered the front with a blue plaid from the SPRING PLAID  PP1012 6X6 paper pad.  I then cut the FOREST PATH 94702 twice, once from white cardstock and again from a second piece of the same blue plaid.  I layered the white scene minus the white path onto the background paper and added the blue path layer to make a stream in the forest.


To construct the LITTLE BUNDLED SNOWMAN 94678 I cut everything from white cardstock.  I used an orange marker to color the nose.  I used fingertip daubers and VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink to color the twig arms and VersaFine Clair Tulip ink to color the scarf and hat parts.  I added small black jewels to make coal eyes and buttons and a large pearl for the hat's pompom.


I assembled all of the pieces using the narrowest Scor-Tape (1/8") and added the snowman next to the stream using foam dimensional dots.


I've left room to add an appropriate sentiment later.  This all-occasion card design will work for the holidays, winter, even Valentine's Day.  And there are so many color and paper options, too.  I'll definitely be making more of these Little Bundled Snowmen!

Happy Crafting!
