Shapely Snowman

Hi everyone!

It's been so busy around here that I seem to get my cards either on SplitCoast or here, but not both, but today I have a fun shaped card for the Flourishes new release challenge to share.


Now I am NOT usually a shaped card person, but I had seen some pretty cards using these fancy dies, and since I now have these Floral Ovals in my collection, I decided to try it.  I used some lighter-weight white cardstock so I was sure the die would cut through and then I ran it through my Cuttlebug with an extra piece of cardstock on top of the top plate as a shim.  I ran it through once, and then rotated it a quarter turn and ran it through again for good measure.

I sponged a shadow and a wintry sky before attaching my snowman from Warm Winter Wishes with 3D Foam Squares.  I stamped the sentiment and then added just a few rhinestone "snowflakes".

Thanks so much for stopping by!
