The theme of the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge this month is "Snowman." I've lived in Florida for over 50 years and haven't made a real snowman in many, many years. But Karen has several die sets that give me an opportunity to make a paper snowman at least. I pulled out several previously released dies for my card -- the Snowman Pop-Up being the main one, along with the Christmas Tree Pop-Up. That said, the snowman on the front was actually made with circle dies approximately the same size as the Snowman Pop-Up. I used the smallest plain circle from Crosshatch Circles for the head and one of the dies from the Circle Tag Book for the body. I did bring in smaller dies from the Snowman Pop-Up for the rest of him -- his hat, features, scarf, and arms. The tree is the one of the larger tree dies from the Christmas Tree Pop-Up.
To accommodate both the snowman and the tree, my card is 5" x 8". Because of where the tree needed to be placed, I balanced out the layout with the snowflake die from Long Nature's Edges 2. There was not enough room for the arms or boots that come with that die set.
It's hard to see in the photos, but both of those white rectangles are embossed with snowflakes. I used the Crosshatch Rectangles for the small panel on which you can write your name.
