Silver Snowman

This week's challenge over at High Hopes Rubber Stamps is Anything Christmas! Since I freshly got the Frosty Snowman stamp in the mail, I had to try him out.

It is a breeze to colour!  I used Copic alcohol markers and one of my Pro-Marker alcohol markers.
I just love that little look of mischief on his face! I used a holly embossing folder on silver metallic cardstock behind him. I cut Frosty out and put him on foam tape. The sentiment is from a Stampendous greeting set. I stamped the inside too and added Frosty at the bottom of the card as just a grey outline for interest.

I coloured the brim of his hat with white glue and then poured Ranger's Rock Candy glitter over it. This card has a simple design, but I think it makes Frosty stand out really well. He's the star of the show for sure! This stamp works for masculine cards too - which I always find are harder to come up with than girly cards.
If only I had a die cut window.... I could put him in there! Wouldn't that be cute? He could be peeking over the top of a present too. That would even work for winter birthdays, since snow people represent winter and not necessarily the holidays. I'm very pleased with Frosty. I think I will make more cards like these for myself to use next year.
