Layered Snowman

Have you ever made a card to give away and then decide you like it so much you want to keep it? This is one of those cards. I was stamping images of my Penny Black snowman for a swap and decided to make a multi-layered square card with the snowman at the center.

I began with a 5.5" square base card. I stamped the snowman on a 2.5" square then stamped a second one and cut out just the snowman. I stamped additional snowman images on brown, red and decorative paper. I cut out just the scarf from the red, the stick arms from the brown and the earmuffs from the decorative paper. I glued the scarf, arms and earmuffs on the cut out snowman. This was layered (with pop dots) on top of the snowman I stamped on the 2.5" square white card stock. This layered piece was to be the center of the card.

I cut and layered five alternating red and white layers to back the snowman. I attached some decorative paper to the base card then attached the multi-layered snowman to the card. The last step was to stamp the snow part of the image on white card stock, cut it out, emboss and attach at the bottom.
