Make Your Own Snowman

I made this gift box and card yesterday for the technique challenge at Splitcoaststampers to make our own snowman.

I used various sizes of circle Nestabilities for the snowmen bodies. I used Eva Gray large and small burgundy brads for their bodies. I used rectangle Nestabilities to make my hats. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch for the snowflakes on their hats. I used markers for their eyes, mouths, and noses. I used twine for their scarves.

On the card, I die cut the three circles, slightly overlapping them, out of the Jillibean designer paper. Then I added my snowman, popping him up on dimensionals. You can't see it in my photo, but I embossed his hat with the square lattice embossing folder.

For the bottom part of the box and the base of the card, I used snowflake stamps to create a coordinating designer paper with my snowman designer paper.

Here's a closer view of the box:

I so adore how you made your snowmen and a box even for this challenge Charlene. And of course the brads look just like M&M's.
