Cut rectangle for snow, ink sides and shadow with blue ink.

Cut blue background to the size you want, place in embossing folder, run through your system, lightly distress with emery board. Adhere to card stock. Ink up your glittery snow rectangle and add to your background.  Build your snowman inking him and the black edges as you go, and adhere him to background.  I nipped off one of the corners of his top hat to make it more balanced,  Ink up snowballs and add to background. Rub sticker to his hand and glitter it up. . Add all embellishments.  Place a dot of Stickles in the middle of glitter snowflake and add a gem. Allow to dry.


Ink up edges of rectangle background and adhere to card.  Grab your Winter words embossing folder and lightly ink up the raised side, carefully add your white card stock and run it through your embossing system. Cut out the word grouping you see here, and the Snowman. adhere the word grouping to your background.  Build your tag, you will have to add the ribbon and snowman piece to a background scrap to make it big enough to fit the tag rim. Trace the rim's stencil on the piecing, cut, assemble, and squish with your Tag Maker System. Punch small hole where ever you want to add your ribbon, tie it on and adhere to card,  Color in his nose and he comes to life!
