Cheery Snowman Card

This is a quick and easy card made with my Silhouette Cameo surely to brighten someone's day.

I got this snowman image from Deb's Ooodles of Doodles coloring pages, then traced it in my Silhouette Designer Software. I always draw a square or circle the size of the card I'm working on so I can get a true picture of how things are going to look. In this case 5.5 x 8.5.

I like to use the "negatives" of cuts to create a different look. Once you get your images weeded out, get out your trusted Zig glue pen.  I love this glue because when it wet it's permanent and when it's dry it's re-positional and it has a narrow point, just right for this size project.

Next, get your card ready. For this project I'm using an 8.5 x 11 sheet folded in half. I like to use shimmer cardstock. I love how it looks and feels. I also used white glitter cardstock to create the "snow" at the bottom of the card.
After I glued down the images I decided to add some dimension to the snowman by popping up his  hands and feet with pop dots. Now everyone who knows me, knows I can't complete a project without some bling somewhere!

So, get out the bling and finish off the project in style!!
