Snowman Challenge!

Have you heard of a Center Step Card? I received 2 hand stamped Christmas cards this past year using this technique, and it was just the inspiration I needed to try something different! I used the instructions found on SCS to create my Snowman card for this weeks DRS Blog challenge. This is such a fun card! I love how it turned out!

Here's what I did...The card base was created from black cardstock, and I stamped the center panel with the Interlocking Snow Background (015H). I cut small strips of white cardstock embossed with the Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder to decorate the side panels. The Warm Wishes Sentiment (611D) used here is actually one stamp that I split apart so that I could stamp it as shown on the red panel used to decorate the bottom of the card base. For the center image, I stamped the Silhouette Snowflake Snowman (247K) on Vellum, using white Staz On ink. I layered it on black cardstock, cut it out with an oval Nestie and added red twine for a scarf and 3 black brads for buttons. I matted it with a white scalloped oval which really made the snowman and his red scarf pop! Best part about this card is that it measures A2 size, so no need to purchase a separate envelope for mailing...Gotta like that!

Just to show you how unique this card is, I took a picture of the side view.
Hope you enjoyed seeing this card! Give it a try, it looks so much more difficult than it really is and I'm sure it will become one of your favorites as well.
