This was a hard challenge for me...because I am such a snowman lover and have way too many images to choose from! Took me almost 2 weeks just to decide which one to use...geesh! I finally ended up choosing a really old wooden red rubber stamp from Stamp City that I bought when I very first started stamping. It really is a cute, cute image, but I chose it mainly because of it's small size so that I could make a shaker card.
I used MFT's Peek-A-Boo Rectangle Die to cut a window on the top layer of my card and then attached acetate to the back that I had dry embossed with a Darice snowflake embossing folder.
The embossed acetate looks so cool, but I had a dickens of a time trying to photograph it, so here's a photograph of just the acetate:
The acetate I use (Judi-Kins Embossable Window Plastic) comes with a thin piece of tissue paper behind each sheet, so I left it on when I embossed the snowflakes and now I have a really cool piece of embossed tissue paper to use on another project! But anyway, hopefully you can get a better idea from this photo what the acetate really looks like over my snowman. I finished off the shaker part of my card with some clear sequins and my tiny sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh's Happy Snowman stamp set.
You have until the 24th to play along with this challenge and there are so many cute, CUTE snowmen cards from the DT and in the gallery to inspire you...check it all out right HERE.
