Let It Snow

      After watching Tim Holtz Holiday Hacks I rummaged through my Sizzix Bigz stash and found a snowman and this is what I came up with.
     In his video Tim shows how to fold a piece of card with a 'W' shape at the bottom and die cut it to get the shape to stand up all by itself. If you haven't seen the video then I would recommend taking a look at some of the ideas he shows, this one is very simple but very effective.
     Having cut my white card snowman with a 'W' bottom I then cut another shape in white glitter card to go on the front, in this layer I also cut the words 'Let It snow' with some dies from the 'Holiday Words - thin' set. To make the words show up I backed them with a small piece of light blue pearl paper.
     Once the glitter layer was stuck on the card I trimmed the bottom flush with the card and stuck a black top hat on to finish off. There is just enough room on the back of the snowman to stamp a small greeting and to write a message. I think a few more of these will be made for the Christmas card box, so this year I won't be caught out not having enough come December.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
