I am playing along with the latest challenge at Jingle Belles. The challenge is called: It's a Scandinavian Christmas! The inspirational photo was the perfect prompt for me. I was also inspired by a card created by Nikki Foraker. She had created a snowman from cardstock that had text printed on it. I really wanted to try something similar so I began by hand cutting a snowman from a piece of white cardstock with text printed on it. Then I hand cut the hat, scarf, arms, eyes and carrot nose. I used a punch for the buttons. With a white gel I carefully drew a "Scandinavian Snowflake" pattern onto the scarf and hat band and added more detail with a red colored pencil. I adhered all the snowman parts together and then attached the snowman to a white textured cardbase that I had embossed with a scoreboard. As I embossed, I made heavy and light embossing patterns on the cardbase so that the background would have lots of texture. This was a super fun challenge and it was an awesome inspirational photo!
