A Snowy Man (MM35)



VERY excited to have been asked to be a Guest Designer on the Merry Monday design team this month!

Here is my first offering. We were given the sketch above to work with and I knew right away I wanted to flip it a bit and play around with the design.

The base for this card is Gumball Green and layered with Pool Party and Night of Navy. The image is from Snow Much Fun. I love this guy. I’ve stamped him in Jet Black StazOn and then water coloured him with coordinating colours.

I used some designer fabric and ribbon to emulate the banners in the sketch. What I found was when using fabric as a ribbon-like detail, it works really well to affix it to some co-ordinating card stock first, then cut in your notch.

Lastly, I added a couple of trinkets and some tags tied on them.

This was a really fun sketch to play with! I do hope you’ll play along at Merry Monday!

  3. Hi Carrie!   It’s great to see you back!  The only problem I have is that the pictures didn’t come through!  I checked out your blog and the only one I could see was the monocromatic card from August.  I don’t know what the problem is or if you could fix it, but I thought you should know about it.   Thanks, Linda
