TH Embossed Snowman Shaped Xmas Card

Used mostly Tim Holtz items on this Christmas card that has a masculine feel to it.

It is easy to make shaped cards using a Spellbinder die. For this Scalloped Rectangle Shaped Christmas Card I cut cardstock, scored the cardstock, folded the card at the score line. Placed Spellbinder Scalloped Rectangle die with part of the edge off the edge of the fold. Used Sizzix to cut the shape and by placing the top plate so that it was not over the edge ran it thru and cut.

Used Marvy Snow Marker heated after dried, TH Stickles, TH Distress Inks & ribbon colored with TH Distress Ink.

Let me know if you see the resemblance of the embossed cutout Snowman and the Snowman on the scrapbook paper with the coloring & ribbon.

    1. It's not a snowman die cut but instead an embossing folder & I fussy cut the outer and used a Kraft knife to cut the interior parts.
