Snowman Birthday card

I needed to make a card for a birthday so I decided to use a snowman and enter the card in the Mod Squad Challenge Blog - Frosty the Snowman challenge.  

I cut the snowman and accessories with my Silhouette Cameo from Bazzill Basics Simply Smooth white cardstock and used Spectrum Noir markers to colour parts. I used Black, IG6 and the blender pen for the hat; OR2 for the carrot nose; DR2 and DR6 for the scarf and EB3 and EB5 for the twig arms. I wanted to use flocking powder on the snowman so I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker.  I didn't have any black brads so I coloured some green ones with the Black marker. I removed the sticker backing (from the front) and attached the brads for buttons and added the scarf, hat and arms. I sprinkled the flocking powder (Recollections) all over the snowman and pressed it down to make sure it was stuck on. I drew on eyes and a mouth and added the carrot with some glue.

For the background I started with a piece of blue cardstock and stamped the sentiment(Fiskars Birthday Bash set) with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I made a score line above the sentiment and stamped a snowflake stamp from my stash with Versamark ink all over the top of the cardstock. Then I embossed it with Recollections 'Snow' Embossing Powder.

I attached the background to a white card base and used foam squares on the back of the snowman to pop it up.

I am also entering this in the Hiding in my Craft Room - Freestyle challenge.
