Introducing Sam E. Snowman!

Jillian wanted a shaker Snowman die so. . .
Introducing Sam E. Snowman!
In collaboration with Melyssa from Whimsie Doodles we created a darling shaker snowman with many options!    The longer scarf piece doubles as his hat band, you can add holly, a star or a snowflake to his hat or surroundings.  Use the button for his belly and you can make it a shaker card using the inner circle die OR just a plain snowman with no cut out like Jillian did in this blog post.  The inner circle will leave stitching on the negative cut of his body to give a special accent to your shaker card.

Using Simply Snowflakes Stamp Set, I stamped my Polka Dot Backdrop Die cut out of navy cardstock with Ranger Embossing Ink then using Frosted White embossing powder heat set.  I wanted a frosty chalkboard look so I just rubbed chalk over those embossed snowflakes! Then taking a dry cloth, lightly rubbed over it to show more of the navy background.
To learn how to create a shaker card, go to the A Jillian Vance Design Blog for more details HERE!

You can see the stitching around the shaker part of the snowman.  I also used Want2Scrap Baby Bling in Black for his eyes.

 Using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares, I popped up the banner and the holly leaves from the Holly & Swirls Die Set
The sentiment is from a new set to be released ~ Frosty. Frosty has great snowman sentiments as well as a primitive snowman to stamp as well.
