Making a snowman shadow box

Happy snowmen by Jen GoodeHere’s a cute project I made as part of the Sizzix blog hop. With snowy weather all around and the holiday’s speeding up on me, I thought it would be a good idea to bring some happiness to the crazy cold.. warm things up a big with a grin or two and get ready for the festivities. I’ve been loving the light blue and deep red color trend I’ve seen floating around so I wanted to incorporate that look as well.

This week I’m using Eileen Hull’s Sizzix ScoreBoards Pro Die – Frame & Frame Back w/Stand. There are a ton of different pieces with this particular die, however I chose to use only a few for this project. The inspiration for the scene is my own snowman illustration which I recreated using various paper shapes tinted with craft chalk.

Other supplies: Hot glue, Mod Podge, snowflake stamp, mini alpha-stamps, a crop-a-dile, yarn, ribbon, MARVY paint markers, DecoArt twinkles glitter paint and iridescent deco flakes.

You can also buy some cute snowmen gifts, t-shirts and more featuring the original snowmen design.

Check out the fabulous creations made by the 50+ other designers participating in this week’s blog hop.
