Snowmen with Wreaths

I started out just making one card... but when it got time to put the snowman on, I didn't like the way it looked. I went back to the drawing board-- or craft table, and came up with another color scheme so I could use both snowmen.

Both of the snowmen are painted with Shimmerz for some shine. In addition, I used touches of Stickles for the holly berries and the cuff of the jacket.

Its hard to see in the pictures, but the white cardstock behind the snowman is embossed with a CB embossing folder. The snowmen are cut out and attached with pop dots for a little added dimension.

Also, when I originally showed them to the 15 year old quality control inspector that lives in my house, they did not pass muster. I didn't have the "Merry Christmas" on there. I had to go back to the craft table one more time and work on them some more. They passed inspection the second go round, and I agreed that they did look much better than they had originally. I guess I'm lucky to have a live-in inspector so readily available!!
