Getting away from my comfort zone again, this time I decided to not use pp!
Techniques: Stamping/heat embossing, Hand cutting/paper piecing.
(Card is straight...my pic is wonky, as usual!)
Okay, so this looks like a pretty uncomplicated design, but in actual fact it took me quite a bit of time to do this one, lol. I stamped the white cardstock all over with a snowflake stamp using versamark, then I applied irridescent ice embossing powder and heat embossed it. For the snowman image, I also used heat embossing to give it a shimmery effect and each piece of the snowman is individually handcut and paper pieced (even the buttons, nose & leaf!) like a puzzle. I turned up the end of the scarf a bit for a more dimensional effect, and added liquid applique under the snowman for 'snow' (which doesn't look so yellow irl). Also used pop dots under the image for dimension as well.
Also, I had to handcut and punch for the scallops.
Hopefully this pic will give you a better idea:
