Silhouette Snowman Card

Hello everyone, today I am posting a recipe for a card I have made using another of the new gorgeous Little Claire Christmas silhouette stamps and this one is called "Silhouette Snowman". It seems strange making Christmas cards when the sun is cracking the flags but Christmas will be upon us before we know it and if you have lots of cards to give out it`s best to start early. Silhouette stamps are great because they do all the work for you - no colouring in, no colour matching just stamping and playing.

what you will need:
Little Claire Silhouette Santa stamp
6" x 6" base card
white linen card
blue card
white card
Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder
die cutting machine
Versa Mark water mark ink pad
heat gun
Stampin Stuff Winter Wonderland Opaque embossing powder
anti static pad
blue & white ribbon
ring binder hole punch
Stick the linen card onto the base card and cut to size.
Cut a piece of the plain white card so that it can be used with the embossing folder and run through the die cutting machine. Do this twice.
Measure 2 11/16" down from the edge of the longest side of the embossed design and cut. Do the same with the other piece of card.
Align the two  pieces of card along  the cut edge and stick together on the reverse with sticky tape,  remember to line up the side edges of the embossed design (don't worry that the patterns don't match up as the ribbon will cover this).
Cut the embossed card to the required size.
Attach a piece of ribbon along the join of the embossed card and secure around the back.
Mat and layer the embossed card onto a piece of blue card and stick the whole lot onto the base card.
Rub the anti static pad over a piece of blue card.
Using the Versa Mark ink pad stamp the Silhouette Snowman image onto the blue card.
Sprinkle the Winter Wonderland embossing powder over the image and shake off the excess.
Heat from behind with the heat gun.
Cut the image down to size and stick onto the base card using foam pads.
For my sentiment I used a pre-set sentiment from my graphics program (Craft Artist) and re sized it to 2" and then coloured it blue, but if you like to stamp your sentiment then stamp it onto a piece of white linen card using a dark blue ink pad.
Cut the sentiment to size and mat and layer it onto a piece of blue card.
Stick the sentiment onto the base card using a strong glue.
Punch 6 dots from the blue card using the hole punch and bevel them.
Stick the dots onto the card.
