Use Snowman Builder punch to punch out the outlines of snowman components. Tape the outline onto Stamparatus graph paper.
Lay the stamp for the snowman component face down into the outline of the snowman. Insert a clear plate into the Stamparatus and press down on the back of the snowman stamp so that the snowman stamp sticks to the plate. Lift. Move the plate so that it is 90 degrees and straight up in the hinge, lift, reverse the plate. Place the arm stamp face down into the punched outline and press the plate onto the back of the stamp so the snowman arms stamp sticks to the other side of the plate. Take the plate off the Stamparatus. Place another slide on and do the same procedure with the hat stamp.
Rub the 2 pieces of Whisper White with the embossing buddy.
Place the piece of Whisper White for the snowman over the outline component piece in the Stamparatus. Place a magnet on the top far enough down that it will prevent it from moving.
Ink the snowman stamps with Versamark and stamp the different parts of the snowman by lifting and reversing the plate and substituting the other plate. Versamark ink all the pieces of the snowman: hat, arms, body. Sprinkle with black embossing powder and heat set. Stamp the snowman again.
Line up embossed snowmen parts in the Snowman Builder Punch. Punch out snowmen pieces.
Shade the snowmen / women with Flirty Flaming or Coastal Cabana ink and aqua painters. Color hat with aqua painters and markers.
Clean aqua painters by squeezing water out and wiping on paper towel until clean.
Color the noses with a Pumpkin Pie stampn' write marker.
Die cut snowflakes from sparkle glimmer paper using Christmas Layers Dies, Frosted Frames Dies or other die sets.
Begin layering. Use multi-purpose liquid glue to adhere the DSP panel to the Whisper White panel. Then glue the Whisper White panel to the Real red base.
Use Stamparatus to stamp greeting "Let it Snow" several times on the small piece of Real Red and on the bottom of the 2 x 4 panel for the tag. Use VersaMark ink. Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat set.
Use a label punch to punch the top of the tag and a hole in it. Use the 3/4 circle punch to punch out a circle from a scrap of Coastal Cabana. The use a paper hole punch to punch a hole in the center of this circle. Glue the Coastal Cabana circle on the tag as a reinforcement around the hole in the Real Red tag.
Stamp To and From on the back of the Real Red tag strip in Momento black ink.
On the tag place the small piece of DSP in Upper left corner.
Attach snowman bodies to card and tag at the bottom of the DSP, slightly overlapping Real Red base. Use dimensionals.
Cut the edges of the dimensionals into extremely thin strips. Use the very thin strips to attach to the back of the hand. Use a very small smear of glue on the back at the end of the branch that forms the arm. Attach the arm to the body, overlapping the end of the arm onto the body.
Do the same for the tag. Also attach the hat using a mini dimensional and a small streak of glue on the head.
Attach the felt mittens to the hand end of the arm branch using multi-purpose liquid glue. Use multipurpose liquid glue to adhere a dimensional to the back of the felt hat. Place a thin streak of glue on the top of the snowman's head and adhere the felt hat to the head. The best way to stick the felt down is with multi-purpose liquid glue.
Embellish tag and card with a few snowflakes. Thread Whisper White Baker's Twine through the hole in the tag.
Stamp envelope and Whisper White insert with snowflakes in Coastal Cabana. Stamp a second set of snowflakes without reinking (stamping off). Glue the insert inside the card.
