Snowman circle

   It's Monday and time for another challenge at Eureka Stamps. This week the theme is 'snowman/snowflakes'. I have used digi 23402 - Snowman circle.
   I began by making the easel card using a Spellbinders grand big scalloped circle die to create the shape. I used this shape for all the layers of the card in some cases trimming the card after it had been cut using a die. On the base of easel card I matted card from Core'dinations  core impressions classic Christmas collection having first distressed it and wrapped organza ribbon round it. I then added a bow to it and three snowflakes cut from core'dinations cardstock using Spellbinders create a flake set 3 dies and glittered. Two of these snowflakes act as the easel stop.
   The digi image was coloured using Promarkers and I added Stickles to the snowman and the snowflakes around the edge of the design. I then matted it onto core'dinations cardstock before attaching it to the top half of the easel card.
