There's No Business Like Snow Business Blog Hop

There's Snow Business like Snow Business with all the friendly snowman putting on a show for you today. All I need is a cane and a top hat to start singing now or be Frosty the Snowman and shout "Happy Birthday"!  It may be Frosty and Cold outside but it's warm inside as long as you stay bundled up sledding through our hop!

We have a wonderful line-up for you to either grab your tobagon, sled, sleigh or ski's to check out the craftiness -- grab that hot cocoa and don't forget the marshmallows AND whipped cream, soft blankie, stay warm and snuggly and check out how we build a snowman before he melts!

If you happened upon my blog in error, I do want you to begin at the beginning of building Frosty by stopping by Miss Kari.

We do have some snow candy for you today for stopping by but you need visit all the snow drifts along the way and leaving a warm snuggly comment but just watch out for the yellow snow! Just check out the ribbon, chipboard snowflakes, clear stamp along with a light mauve stamp pad and just some added bling bling and crystal stickles!!!! A great way to build that personal snowman of yours!!!

In the meantime, let's get on with the SNOW . . .

I made a snowman card using the file "Build a Snowman" from SVG Attic. I just my snowman at 6.5 inches and welded to snowmen together.
I then sized all his other pieces to fit...
Remember that when you weld two silhouettes together that everything has to go on the one right hand one because the one on the left if the back of your card.
Once Mr. Snowman was cut I had some fun with the embellishments. I found some mini (and I do mean mini) buttons in my button stash and I added some glitter Modge Pod to his heart and finally I added green flocking to the rim and ball on his cap
For some added touches I used my Cuddle Bug and did a snowflake embossing all over Mr. Snowman and then I used silver glitter mist on him also. You can't see the silver glitter mist in the pictures but it's there.

Hugs from Jearise in Lorby's World and now the hop is at an end, our snowmen have started to melt, I hope you felt the warmth they send for a very special day.

  4. Jearise, This is such a cute card. I have to try out some svg files this year. You make it look easy. I love the use of the flocking too. I have quite a bit of that in my stash, but haven't played with it enough.I really like the idea of the embossing of the snowman. That really made him look snowy. Great job. tfs Tami
