Inspiration is everywhere!

While out shopping the other day, I came across a really cute gift box with a snowman on it. It just so happened to be the perfect size for a gift I was giving, so I took him home with me. After wrapping the gift, I realized I needed to make a card. And what's better than a matching set?

So here is a glimpse of the box...


He is a funny shaped fellow, so I started searching my die cut images for something similar and settled on a set of pumpkins(yep, you read that right) from the Spooky Slice Design Card. I decided on a size and cut them out and added them to the card base that I pre-misted.


I then added some of my BasicGrey stickers from the December TSM kit. "O"s for the eyes and buttons, "periods" for the mouth, and the orange border sticker by Crate Paper made the carrot nose. THEN I used some letters to create the little stick arms. Here are a couple close ups...


A strip and a rectangle of black cardstock, wrapped with some baker's twine makes the hat. And then I cut tiny slits in the card to thread the ribbon through for the scarf.

I used a tiny flower to make the whimiscal snowflakes, stamped a sentiment on a strip of paper and folded it like a banner... Voila!

Happy Holidays! I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial!

OK, how cute are you!! Fantastic!

Hey, how often do you use your Slice? Do you like it? Do you own a Cricut? I was given a Cricut, but I almost bought a slice at the doorbuster sales... I like their shapes better I think...
