Sneak Peek Week: Day 3 - Snowman Pop-Up

 Hello and welcome to day 3 of Sneak Peek Week! I'm so excited to share with you today, this three tiered snowman using Karen Burniston's Surprise Ball Pop-Up, Bitty Ball Pop-Up, Mini Ball Pop-Up and the brand new Snowman Add-On's die set, which is part of the August 2022 new release, available at www.karenburniston.com on September 5th!


To make this card, I cut a card with green cardstock, 5x10 inches, folded to make a 5x5 card. I printed the sentiment "warm wishes and snowman kisses" on heavy weight smooth white cardstock and cut it out to fit the card. I used a red plaid pattern paper for the background and added a snow hill. I added the "Season's Greetings" sentiment using Karen Burniston's Word Set 3 - Holiday from sparkly white cardstock and smooth white cardstock. I glued the smooth white cardstock to the back of the sparkly cardstock to add some strength and dimension to the sentiment. 

The snowman is made from heavy weight smooth white cardstock (110lb). I cut each ball out and glued everything together using Lineco Neutral pH adhesive. I die cut the snow man arms from kraft cardstock and using my Copic markers I added some shadows. I die the carrot nose twice and with my Copic markers added some details to the nose then glued it on the snowman's face. I die the eyes, smile and buttons from a shiny black cardstock and with a white Gelly Pen (size 10) I added some detail to the eyes. 

For the snowman's hat, I added ribbon and punched out the two green leaves and berries from some scrap cardstock I had. The berries I made from a hole punch and the leaves were from a Recollections punch I've had for years. I added some glossy accents to the berries and once that was dry, I added some highlights with my white Gelly pen. 

I keep all my scraps of paper/cardstock in drawers based on color or pattern, so I dug through my Christmas paper drawer and found a plaid like paper to use for the snowman's scarf. 

I die cut out the snowflakes using the same sparkly white cardstock as the sentiment, using the snowflake that came with the Snowman Add-On die set. 

I currently do not have the Flap and Closure dies (although I did order them, because you can never have too many dies!) so I created my own flap to use as a closure. I cut out a green piece of cardstock 5x2 inches and added a score line at 1 inch. Then added it to the bottom of the card. 

The Snowman Add-On is so great, especially if, like me, you absolutely love all things snowmen! Be sure to add this to your shopping cart on September 5th, because it is a great addition to your collection!

Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
