Snowman Challenge - Stuck On You Sketches

So excited to be posting this new card! I have been working and reading and learning new techniques and am glad to be here sharing them with you all. This card that I am featuring today is a card that I made for a Die cut challenge for Stuck On You Sketches. This months Die-Cut Challenge was Snowmen. And I thought it only completely fitting since I live in Indiana and we have been freezing and surrounded by snow. The snow is coming down like crazy even now as I write this. I am from California and not made for this weather. However, I am going to take the cold days and craft away. Ok lets get to this card...

 


I found the file in my Silhouette library and just fell in love with it. I wanted to choose something that could be cut/drawn with my sketch pens. It took some work getting the stitching on the sides to not overlap the snowflake background, and I think I will post a tutorial on how to do it once I perfect it :) All of the patterns are from my Silhouette Studio Library and the coloring was all done with chalk. You can see it a little in the above picture, but the below shows you the clear embossing on the scarf, hat, and snowflake that I did to give it a little extra pop. It gives the card some texture and is a little shinier in person.



I hope you enjoyed this card!! I had a blast making it. Love SOUS and can't wait to post for the next challenge. Have a great day everyone! Thanks for looking, Always- Jameka
