Well, this wasn't what I had pictured in my mind at all, and I'm not sure it's even a good result. I'm still mulling this one over. lol Maybe I should have stopped back a step or two.

So, for the snowman panel, I stamped him with white craft ink. I stamped him again onto the ruby red paper and cut out the hat, scarf and carrot nose and glued that on. Okay, that looks good. So, I punch out the buttons out of the brown and glue them on. Okay, not bad. Well, the white snowman just didn't show up all that well. Hmmm, what to do? I know, I'll go over the lines with my white gel pen. A little better, but still not so hot. So, knowing it still needed something, I punched out the snow flake and backed it with white to show up. Hmmm, too symetrical, it doesn't look good. So, why not run it through the cuttlebug with the snowflakes folder. I rather liked that, it was definitely better. Well, we can't leave well enough alone, so I used my glue pen and added flocking to the snowman. Sorry you can't see that step, but that is exactly why it wasn't so great! So, I came back and added liquid applique. Mmmmmm, I don't know. So I used my trusty glue pen to add sticky and throw on some dazzling diamonds. That has to help, right? Well, actually it did! I'm liking it better. I know it's not my greatest creation, but it is finished. I promise I am not going to do another thing to this one. Oh yeah, I glued the snowflake I punched out to the inside and glittered it up. I like that a lot. Well, if you've read through all this you're a brave soul. Thanks for stopping by. lol Have a great day!

Karen, this is great! I have always resorted to Dazzling Diamonds when all else fails, too! LOL!

This is a really cute card!
I've had many moments in the end where I looked at a card and said "what were you thinking?" hee hee!
