Cute Little Snowman :)

Another punch art card- this time a sweet little snowman bringing Christmas greetings :). These little punch art projects are super easy to do. For this card you will need:

Stamps: Best Yet (Hostess Level One- retired) You can use another sentiment
Card Stock: Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, Only Orange, Basic Black, Going Gray
Paper: Brocade Blue Designer Series Paper (Hostess Level One- retired) but you could use
Bashful Blue Designer Series Paper
Classic Stampin' Ink: Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Whisper White Craft
Punches: Ornament (Whisper White- head)
3/4" Circle (Whisper White- hands- cut 2)
1/4" Circle (Only Orange- nose)
Small Tag (Basic Black- hat)
Word Window (Basic Black- hat brim)
Tear Drop (Basic Black- eyes)
Dies: Matchbox labels in Real Red and Whisper White
Beary Merry- holly leaves in Old Olive and berries in Real Red
Accessories: Clear glue, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Regal Rose Stampin' Pastels, Black
Journaler marker, White Gel pen

Cut card base from Real Red 4.25" x 5.50". Layer Old Olive mat ( 4" x 5.25") on card front. Layer the Brocade Blue or Bashful Blue Designer Series Paper (3.75" x 5") on the Old Olive. To create the snowman, punch out the parts listed above in the supplies. Ink the edges of the head and the hands with Bashful Blue. Add a light touch of Regal Rose chalk to create rosy cheeks on the face. Adhere the eyes and the nose, then draw on the mouth. Add some white to the eyes with the white gel pen (refer to photo). With the Whisper White Craft ink lightly brush the edges of the hat pieces on the left side and across the top. Adhere the Small Tag punch hat to the back of the snowman's head. Then adhere the Word Window brim to the front of the hat. I used the Small Tag punch to create the hat band from Going Gray. Line up just about an 1/8" inside the squared part of the Small Tag punch and punch out the hat band. Adhere that above the Word Window brim. Die cut the labels from the Matchbox die. Stamp your sentiment on the Whisper White label in Old Olive and layer/assemble the label. Adhere the snowman head to the card front, then adhere the Matchbox label, then the snowman hands so he is holding his sign. Ink the edges of the Old Olive holly leaves with Old Olive Classic Stampin' ink and adhere the leaves and the berries to the hat band. Add some clear glue to the edges of the hat, hat brim, the side of the snowman face, and on the tops of his hands and sprinkle on some Dazzling Diamonds (click on photo for a larger view to see placement of glitter). You can add a little die cut snowflake as a small embellishment if you would like :). And that's all there is to it! Wasn't that easy?

Hope you all have a wonderful day today! Come back tomorrow for another punch art project :D.
