Paper Players Challenge #23-Snowman Theme

It is time for another Challenge at the Paper Players Challenge Blog.  I am this week's host and I have challenged my team to make a paper project using a Snowman on it!!  You can create any paper project such as a scrapbooking page, a card, a 3D project or maybe even a project using material!

I decided to change the shape of my card to a Tent Topper Style of card.  I cut my cardstock base in Pacific Point Paper and measured it to be 8.5" x 4.25".  Then I folded it in half.  Then using my Circle Scissors Plus, I cut a 2.75" circle out of Whisper White Paper and used the Scallop Circles #2 Die to create a Bashful Blue Scallop Circle for the top of my card!

I used the PRETTY Blueberry Crisp Designer Paper (117392) on pg.174.  This paper has all my favourite colours in it and could be easily adapted to work on a holiday card as I have used it here!  I stamped the "Winter Wonderrland" sentiment in White Craft Ink directly onto the Designer Paper and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder and my Heat Gun.  Using a little Bashful Blue Ribbon and my Snowflake Punch, I added some sweet details to the card that makes it extra special for that someone special!

A Tip:
-The best new thing about Stampin' Up's Colour Change is the addition of the Crumb Cake Marker.  I used the marker to gently highlight the snowman, so he didn't appear flat on the Whisper White Cardstock.
