Hello everyone, and welcome to our latest challenge at Dies R Us.
Challenge #182 ~ Anything Goes!
(As long as you use a die sold at the Dies R Us store)
Snowmen are just too cute, and they always make for a happy and festive card, don't you think?
To make this card, I started with a piece of snowflake pattern paper from North Wind from Craft & You Design.
I added the snowbanks and the trees. After fiddling about with my printer and the little wood sign for a while, I finally got the little message printed on the board. It took some major finagling but where there is a will there is a way, and by golly I was going to get that sign printed :-) Next I used a small circle punch to punch out the snowballs. Once this was all done, it was time to die cut and put together Fred the snowman :-) When everything was adhered to the card, I felt like there was a lot of empty space on the top, so I cut out a snowflake border and added it to complete the scene.
On the inside, I used the rest of the snowflake background paper, added a few trees and the greeting to finish it all off.
Here is the list of supplies I used to make this card. Remember that not all items are in stock right now because some of the international dies I used are only on sale during Special Order Sales events. The best way to know about these is to subscribe to the Dies R Us Newsletter HERE.
