Poinsettia Framed Snowmen Card

Here is the fourth and final design of the workshop projects. I was thrilled when SU! came out with dry embossing folders for the Big Shot! They are slightly bigger than other company's embossing folders, so they actually cover the entire front of a standard card front, rather than just creating an embossed layer. This folder is "Petals a Plenty". I learned how to create this dry embossed 'frame' from fellow SU! demonstrator Patty Bennett. For this design, I used a wooden picture mat with the oval pre-cut from it that I picked up at the craft store.

The focal image comes from the Level 3 Host set "The More the Merrier", stamped in Basic Gray and colored in using a Blender Pen and Stampin' Write Markers. The Two Way Glue Pen adheres the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to create the 'snow' the snowmen are sitting on. I also used the Real Red Stampin' Write to color the middles of the poinsettias to add just a touch more of color. The Modern Label and Word Window Punches, along with the Red Gingham Ribbon complete this fun design. ENJOY!
