Frosty Snowmen

Happy Friday!
Since once again we have snow in our forecast for this weekend, a whole card of little frosty snowmen seemed the way to go. Unlike the folks further north, our snow usually only hangs around a few days so it's always fun to see here. If I had to shovel or dig out all the time it might change my opinion, lol.

For my very frosty card, I scored a grid on white card stock. It really is scored in both directions, though it's hard to see the vertical lines in this light. I stamped all the little inch sized frosties using a blue rainbow pad with the ink gradually getting lighter toward the top. A little shading was added w/ markers and the edges were sponged before attaching to a 5.5 x 4.25 card.
The big Frosty was colored, cut out and layered onto a snowflake embossed oval. A few die cut snowflakes were added behind him. The greeting was also die cut w/ a tag die. I used a glue pen to dot all the snowflakes, buttons, and capital letter then sprinkled on some transparent glitter.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
