Oh Those Snowmen! FMS265






The day after Thanksgiving my daughter had a few cousins over - and Gram of course who never misses a party - to work on holiday crafts.  I must have been thinking of these little snowmen tea light ornaments when I put together this card!




I used the sweet little snowman from Snow Place to spread the joy of the Christmas season.  The embossed stitched circle was done with stitched dies and an embossing mat. Adding an embossing mat to your Big Shot sandwich prevents the dies from cutting all the way through.  Instead the dies leave an impression. I first saw this technique here on Jennifer McGuire's blog.




Narelle has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you join us!

What a fabulous idea to use dry embossing for the circle! You are so clever, even when you're sick!

I've been going to pull out my embossing mat and try this technique and now you've inspired me! Love the circles with the cute snowmen!

So my first question is do I have an embossing mat? If so, where would it be. If not, where would I find one????? ;-) Ok. This is totally adorable!!

What a sweet card! I love that cute little snowman and I love what you've done with the dies. Hmmm...I think I have an embossing mat. Maybe. I need to try this!!! I will not check out Jennifer's blog though because I know I'll just want everything she has!

I was going to ask how you got the circle dies to emboss those fun circles. Nice tip! I like the jaunty little snowman on your card and the little tea light snowmen are adorable.
