Soft Snowman

Incy Wincy Designs' current challenge theme is "Sketch It Out." The design they provided is for a square card, but I altered it slightly to make it a portrait-oriented A2 card.

I stamped my image from a Penny Black set (name unknown) onto a piece of white cardstock, and die cut the panel with a DoCrafts Xcut "Scalloped Square" die. I colored the snowman with colored pencils, using a bit of Gamsol on a paper stump to blend the subtle shading for the snowman's body & head. I felt the panel needed a little something more, though, so I lightly blended Tumbled Glass Distress ink in the upper portion, and Hickory Smoke ink around the lower edges.

Once I had my focal panel done, it was time to decorate the card front. I cut several patterned papers, from both the "Dear Santa" 6x6" pad from BoBunny, and The Paper Studio's "A Very Merry Christmas" 6x6" pad. I also cut a panel of light blue cardstock to layer behind the focal panel. I adhered my base layers to a white A2 card base, and then adhered the additional pieces in place on top. Finally, I glued down my focal panel, and this card was done!

I'm also entering this card in Through the Craft Room Door's "Anything Goes" challenge.
